Home hopes crumbled for Gabon in the lottery of a penalty shootout at
the African Nations Cup on Sunday but Ghana's hopeful search to end a
long drought at the finals continued.
Mali beat co-hosts Gabon 5-4 on post-match kicks after extra time in
Libreville to douse the passion of an expectant populace in first of the
day's quarterfinal encounters. The match ended 1-1 as Mali equalised
just six minutes from the end.
Ghana, seeking their first Nations Cup title in 30 years, won the later
game in the provincial town of Franceville, beating Tunisia 2-1 after
extra time courtesy of a goalkeeping howler.
