Group D fails to produce a winner

Herve Renard’s Ivory Coast were held to a 1 – 1 draw by Mali while Cameroon and Guinea also registered a similar scoreline as the teams in group D remained level on two points after two rounds of games.

Substitute Max-Alain Gradel’s late equaliser earned a disjointed Ivory Coast side a 1-1 draw against Mali in the Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday as the Elephants kept alive their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

Renard again had to watch his team come from behind as was the case in the opening game against Guinea but will know that the final game against rivals Cameroon on Wednesday will be tough.

In the late kickoff, Benjamin Mokandjo and Ibrahima Traore were both on target for Cameroon and Guinea respectively.

All teams are now level on 2 points in the group going into the final round of group stage matches.
