A bit naughty

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

The 48 fouls in this one makes this the naughtiest game we have seen so far. It trumps the 40 we saw when Equatorial Guinea and Congo drew yesterday.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

Shooting accuracy has not been a strength of teams in this tournament so far...

Statistically, this one was pretty even, just how it seemed during the 90 minutes.

This man was impressive tonight, but why is he not getting club action?

Zambia take on Tunisia next Thursday, when Congo DR will also play Cape Verde.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

A fair result? What do you think? Tweet us on #bbcafcon2015.

Cape Verde made the better chances early on but Tunisia grew into this one and suddenly built pressure on the hour to eventually force the lead with a beautifully taken goal. The advantage was however short lived and we have a tight Group on our hands.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

It's a good position but a long way out...here comes the kick...Edem Rjaïbi runs over the ball as a dummy and then he is fed...in the area...fluffs it. He didn't take a touch and gets his cross-shot horribly wrong. Goal kick.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

This game is ending with long balls from end to end. Minimal risk from both sides as they commit little but nervy for defenders.

Free-kick awarded to Tunisia 30 yards out and central. This will be the last act...

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

Stephane Nater skips a challenge or two and cuts in from left to right, he lets fly from 30 yards plus and that my son is far from text book. High and wide, it probably threatens a neighbouring country.

In fairness, it maybe took a bobble as this pitch is nota billiard table. Three minutes added.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

This result would leave Group B completely level. All four teams will have a point and a goal difference of zero.

It's worth pointing out that if teams are level on points at the end of the group, they are split by their head-to-head record.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

A quick shout out to my colleague Andy Cryer who earlier told us there was no goal coming in this game. I'll join his brave stance of putting it on the line and say I don't think we will get a winner.

Both these sides look content and the substitutions are now frequent so the game has no flow.

SUBSTITUTION

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

Will these sides now settle and play out the second 1-1 draw of the day?

A draw would probably be a fair result. Off comes Kuca for Cape Verde - he missed one or two good chances, on comes Odair Fortes. Go on son, grab the headlines.

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

This is on a knife-edge now as we enter the final 10 minutes. What a blow for Tunisia. They were second best, then found their groove and pressured before taking the lead, only for it to be swiped away from them.

GOAL

Tunisia 1-1 Cape Verde

Heldon sweeps a super penalty high into the top corner, across his body it nestles in the top-left hand corner.

The Sporting Lisbon striker wins the kick himself with a rapid burst down the left and he went down under a poorly timed challenge.

No doubts it's a clinical foul by Syam Ben Youssef but it was right on the edge of the box and even replays don't clear up if it should be a penalty.

Tunisia 1-0 Cape Verde

The man who delivered the pass for the goal - Ali Maaloul - has impressed me. A small but nimble left-back, who looks good going forward. Defensively he, like his team-mates was a bit ropey in the first half but his contribution has been very good.

The 25-year-old plays for Club Sportif Sfaxien in Tunisia.

Tunisia 1-0 Cape Verde

So what have you got Cape Verde? A set-piece delivery call on some robust goalkeeping and defending at the back for Tunisia. Will we see more direct play as the equaliser is sought? They will really regret those missed first-half chances.

GOAL

Tunisia 1-0 Cape Verde - Mohamed Ali Moncer

Tunisia
AFP

This is well worked and very much with the run of play in the last 10 minutes.

A beautifully weighted pass by Jamel Saihi gets over-lapping full-back Ali Maaloul in behind the Cape Verde defensive line and his ball across the area is begging to be finished...in comes Mohamed Ali Moncer at the back post to do just that. He side foots it high into the roof of the net.

CLOSE!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

The last few minutes have seen a change in momentum and suddenly Tunisia look to have some confidence and poise. They force another corner and now a free-kick is swung in by Wahbi Khazri...chance...wasted.

Aymen Abdennour was on the end of it unmarked but he could not quite stretch enough to get a clean connection.

We may yet get a goal.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

A let off for Cape Verde as goalkeeper Vozinha is bundled into his goal by Syam Ben Youssef as the ball rolls over the line. Lucky. It looked harsh to say the least.

In the build-up, Tunisia saw a header from Yassine Chikhaoui thump the cross bar. He out jumped Vozinha who was in no-man's land.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

GREAT SAVE!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Tunisia defender Syam Ben Youssef is the reason the scores are still level. Kuca is on the end of a slick Cape Verde attack and he checks back onto his right foot and slides the ball under the goalkeeper into the centre of the net but there is the man on the line. Great instincts to sense danger and get back there quickly.

CLOSE!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Wahbi Khazri - Tunisia's man to watch for us before kick-off - whips a ball across the box and Mohamed Ali Moncer is a foot away from connecting. His slide takes the mother of all divots out of the penalty area.

This pitch was laid around a month ago and is imported from Spain. Turf normally has far more time to settle.

CLOSE!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

As my colleague Andy Cryer turns to me and says "there's no goal in this Luke", Mohamed Ali Moncer tries to defy him with a long-range shot. Easily held and Andy sits motionless.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

A better spell from Tunisia as they construct passes and though Hamza Mathlouthi cannot get a delivery in as challenges fly into the right-back, they at least looked shapely and settled.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Here we go again then and Cape Verde are right at it. Left-back Stopira gets down the flank and forces a corner, which leads to another. Babanco swings it...well headed away.

A ground worth visiting?

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Ebebeyin Stadium
AFP

This is only the second Africa Cup of Nations match to be played at the Ebebeyin Stadium, a remote town near the borders with Cameroon and Gabon.

It is one of the unlikeliest venues to host two former African champions, being a tiny new stadium carved out of the dense jungle in the far north-eastern corner of Equatorial Guinea.

The 1-1 draw between DR Congo and Zambia earlier today is the only other match to be played at this 5,000-seat ground hastily put together for the tournament and with no stands behind the goals.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

A fairly tight first half but no doubt which side bettered it in terms of the quality of chances created.

BBC Stats
BBC

Cape Verde looked more creative, if a little poor finishing, but man of the half for me was referee Eric Arnaud Otogo-Castane. His call to award a free-kick on the edge of the box when Heldon was felled was spot on.

Trimmed clarity

Ivory Coast striker Salomon Kalou is getting a bit heavy on Instagram after a hair cut.

Steady on Salomon.

Ivory Coast play Guinea on Tuesday.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Tunisia have been second best throughout that half. It would be wrong to say they looked lacklustre, the effort was there, but creativity wise they have lacked the fluidity of their opponents.

HALF-TIME

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Cape Verde deserve more than stalemate at half time after a first half in which they looked more vibrant than a side ranked 18 places above them by Fifa. Fernando Varela missed a glorious headed chance - finding the post - and that could prove costly yet.

Georges Leekens will be pleased to get his Tunisia side in on level terms.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

BBC Sport's Alex South at Ebebeyin: Crowd much more quiet for the second round. Even the man with the horn has stopped.

Get in!!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

As this half draws to a close, Cape Verde look tricky going forward with the threesome of Kuca, Heldon and Djaniny. They force another free-kick in a great position. What's that saying? Score when you're on top?

Heldon can't do so...he finds the wall.

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

CLOSE!

Tunisia 0-0 Cape Verde

Babanco - impressive throughout - smashes the free-kick into the wall but the loose ball falls to Kuca six yards out. He is crowded by what seem like a thousand white shirts but stabs at it with the wrong foot and it trickles wide. What a chance.
