    • Cape Verde Islands
    • Angola
    • 90+2' That's it! Cape Verde book a historical passage through to the quarter finals of the Africa Cup of nations!
    • 90' There will be three minutes of added time.
    • 89' GOAL! ANGOLA 1-2 CAPE VERDE. A terrific left-footed finish from Heldon after Lama fumbles a cross means Cape Verde are going through here!
    • 87' South Africa have levelled again in the other match meaning it is currently they and Cape Verde going through!
    • 85' Substitute Yano finds space in the area and his effort whistles across the face of goal and out for a goal kick.
    • 84' If Cape Verde could muster a goal here, it would be hosts South Africa heading out of the tournament.
    • 83' Morocco have gone 2-1 up against South Africa meaning both of these teams would go out.
    • 81' GOAL! ANGOLA 1-1 CAPE VERDE. Goalkeeper Lama makes a mess of punching a corner. The ball drops to Gege whose header is headed over the line by Varela!
    • 80' Cape Verde have 10 minutes left to save themselves.
    • 79' Geraldo replaces Gilberto in Angola's second substitution.
    • 78' Tavares heads over a fine inswinging free-kick from Soares. Angola were negligent at the back as they allowed Tavares a free header and were almost made to pay.
    • 77' It's still all up for grabs here, but Cape Verde need a goal to have any chance.
    • 76' The rain is worsening in Port Elizabeth.
    • 75' Airosa is unhappy with the challenge from Babanco. Angola have another free-kick which Gilberto curls in but Manucho fails to connect with properly
    • 74' Carlitos puts the corner from Djalma out for another corner. Angola's third in succession.
    • 73' Vozinha fails to properly punch a corner and gives away another one.
    • 71' South Africa have drawn level in the other game against Morocco. They currently top the group, with Angola in second place.
    • 70' Good chance for Cape Verde but Djaniny's control is poor and the goalkeeper comes out to block!
    • 68' Manucho can't keep the ball in and Cape Verde have a throw near the halfway line. Angola's fans have been vocal throughout.
    • 67' Cape Verde are applying a bit of pressure here and Marco Soares blasts over the bar from the edge of the area.
    • 65' Heldon bends the ball over the wall and Lama makes a bit of a mess of pushing it out, but the ball goes to safety.
    • 63' Free-kick for Cape Verde after a silly trip from Dias on subsitute Djaniny.
    • 62' Dede has come on to replace Mateus for Angola. That's their first change.
    • 61' Cape Verde's first international was only in 1979 against Guinea-Bisáu. Interesting fact for you there.
    • 59' The flag goes up for offside against Djalma after he runs onto Manucho's flick on.
    • 57' Substitute Heldon has earned himself a booking for Cape Verde. Didn't quite see what for.
    • 56' Djalma's free-kick zips wide of Vozinha's right-hand post.
    • 55' Angola win a free-kick. They have wrestled back control in this second-half.
    • 54' Poor touch from Mateus who would have been in on goal had he been able to chest Amaro's through ball in front of him rather than to the side.
    • 53' Mendes has gone down holding his knee but will be ok.
    • 51' Manucho strikes the post for Angola but the flag goes up for offside!
    • 50' Good tracking back from Gilberto and Djalma comes away with the ball for Angola.
    • 48' Cape Verde have started this second-half in lively fashion.
    • 47' Two substitutions at half-time. Heldon has come on for Platini for Cape Verde and Djaniny has replaced Varela.
    • 46' We are back underway in the second-half.
    • 45+2' That's half-time, as the rain starts to come down. Angola lead 1-0.
    • 45+1' Platini wins a throw for Cape Verde. They'll be hoping to see more of him in the second-half.
    • 45' There will be two minutes of added time.
    • 44' Coming up to half-time in Port Elizabeth as Tavares is caught offside by the Angola defence.
    • 42' This has been Cape Verde's worst 45 minutes of the tournament so far. The half has lacked quality but has livened up since the goal.
    • 40' A forceful run down the left from Babanco whose cross almost sneaks in at the near post. Lama has to push it out for a corner.
    • 39' Fernando Varela makes a good challenge on Campos and the ball goes out for an Angola throw.
    • 37' Mendes does superbly to keep th ball in play and curls a cross in from the left which Platini heads over!
    • 36' Gilberto wins a header in the area for Angola who are coming under a bit of pressure after going ahead.
    • 35' Tavares rises to head an inswinging free-kick inches wide at the back post. Cape Verde should be level!
    • 32' GOAL! ANGOLA 1-0 CAPE VERDE. A Nando own-goal gives Angola the lead! Djalma Campos plays Amaro in down the left and as Nando tries to cut the cross out he succeeds only in diverting it past Vozinha at the near post.
    • 31' Varela is unhappy with the challenge from behind by Amaro and the pair exchange some angry words!
    • 30' Djalma Campos curls in to the box but Gege rises to head it away.
    • 29' Airosa tries to get Mateus on the run down the right but the latter slips.
    • 27' A Cape Verde corner goes off the shoulder of Tavares for a goal kick. He should have got a head on that.
    • 26' Lama does well to punch the ball away as Cape Verde exert some pressure on Angola here.
    • 25' It's been a tense first-half so far as Bastos needlessly heads the ball out for a Cape Verde throw.
    • 23' Manucho is back in his own area to head out an Cape Verde free kick. His defensive work is an underrated side of his game.
    • 22' The game has lacked fluidity so far. Only Manucho's header wide to speak of.
    • 20' Gilberto wins a throw for Angola. His delivery into the area has been good so far.
    • 19' Manucho fails to control the ball in the area and Cape Verde clear.
    • 18' The Angola coach claims we have not seen the best of his side yet. They have started this game pretty well.
    • 17' Babanco's pass through to Mendes is also overhit.
    • 16' Varela plays the ball into the box but his pass is overhit and drifts harmlessly out for a goal kick.
    • 15' Bastos puts the ball out of play down in the corner for a Cape Verde throw.
    • 14' Mateus curls in a cross which Gege wins in the air. Angola on top here.
    • 12' Gilberto curls in another free kick from a similar position but this time the Cape Verde defence deals with it.
    • 11' Gilberto curls in a free kick which Manucho rises to head just wide of Vozinha's goal!
    • 10' As it stands, both of those sides would go through. A long way to go yet...
    • 9' In the other game, Morocco have taken an early lead against South Africa.
    • 7' Ryan Mendes attempts a curled effort from the left which drifts over the Angola bar.
    • 6' Amaro is back on the field as Djalma Campos' pass drifts out of play for a Cape Verde throw.
    • 5' Marco Soares looks for Tavares but Airposa comes away with the ball.
    • 4' Amaro is down in need of treatment after getting an elbow across the face from Tavares. He is being stretchered off for a bit of attention on that wound.
    • 3' The offside flag goes up against Manucho.
    • 2' Marco Airosa dispossesses Julio Tavares and Angola have possession.
    • 1' We are off and underway in Port Elizabeth!
    • 16:55 Cape Verde are the smallest nation to play at an Africa Cup of Nations. Angola may enter as favourites but they were desperately lacking in quality in their defeat to South Africa.
    • 16:50 Cape Verde were close to causing a massive upset in their previous game against Morocco when they led 1-0 through Platini’s goal but Youssef El-Arabi’s leveller 12 minutes from time spared Morocco’s blushes.
    • 16:45 A win for Cape Verde today will guarantee their passage through to the next round. They have two points from their opening two matches, while Angola have one and need to win to have a chance of going through.
    • 16:40 ANGOLA: Lama; Marco Airosa, Bastos, Dani Massunguna; Manucho Dinis, Pirolito, Gilberto, Mateus, Djalma Campos; Amaro, Manucho. /// CAPE VERDE: Vozinha; Gege, Fernando Varela, Nando, Carlitos; Babanco, Marco Soares, Platini, Toni Varela; Ryan Mendes, Julio Tavares
    • 16:35 There is still all to play for in this final round of Group A matches, with each of the four teams in with a chance of going through to the quarter-finals.

  2. Cape verde have to show to the world how you prevented­ Cameroun from this competition.

    From Jolly, on Sun 27 Jan 18:23
  3. Cape Verde is waiting what would have been a cheap­ group for Cameroon...hope they get super sacked...Eh eh­ eh!

    From CHI WUN, on Sun 27 Jan 18:07
  4. I'm an idiot, ignore below comment.

    From Adam Beaumont, on Sun 27 Jan 16:50
  5. A will will NOT guarantee Cape Verde's progress­ surely??? Morocco are also on 2 points, if Morocco win­ as well it goes to goal difference.

    From Adam Beaumont, on Sun 27 Jan 16:48
  6. I think neither team would make it through. It is­ likely Morocco beats South Africa and both qualify.
