Gambia and Mali moved to the brink of the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations as they played out a 1-1 draw in Limbe.

Both goals in the Group F encounter came from late penalties awarded via video assistant referee reviews.

Ibrahima Kone had put Mali ahead with 11 minutes left after Ebou Adams pushed over Yves Bissouma in the box.

But Musa Barrow grabbed a point for the debutants in the final minute after Bissouma was penalised for handball.
