Mali finish third in ANC

PORT ELIZABETH, Feb 10, 2013, Reuters: 0:36 IST
Goals by Mahamadou Samassa, Seydou Keita and Sigamary Diarra gave Mali a 3-1 victory over Ghana in the African Nations Cup third-place play-off on Saturday.

Samassa put his team in front in the 21st minute with a diving header following a good pass from Adama Tamboura on the left. Man-of-the-match Keita made it 2-0 just after half-time.

Ghana wasted a chance to get back into the match when Mubarak Wakaso blazed his 58th-minute penalty high over the bar.

Ghana eventually pulled one back when Kwadwo Asamoah beat goalkeeper Soumbeyla Diakite with a long-ranger in the 82nd minute.

Then, as Ghana pushed forward in search of an equaliser, Mali caught them on the counter attack with Diarra scoring three minute into stoppage time.
