Africa Cup of Nations - Group D
Uganda1Mali1

Uganda 1-1 Mali

Mali v Uganda
Uganda had already been knocked out, and had not scored an Africa Cup of Nations goal since 1978

Mali were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations as they drew with Uganda in their final Group D game.

Alain Giresse's side needed to win to have a chance of making the last eight, but would have been eliminated anyway because of Egypt's victory over Ghana.

On a waterlogged pitch, they struggled to find a way past Uganda, who were already out following two defeats.

But after Farouk Miya smashed in Uganda's first Afcon goal since 1978, Yves Bissouma swerved in a free-kick.

Egypt's 1-0 win over Ghana means they qualify as group winners, with Ghana - who were already assured of a quarter-final place - going through as runners-up.

Ghana play DR Congo in the last eight, while Egypt go on to play Morocco.
