Welcome to our live coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations Last 16 clash between Mali and Equatorial Guinea at the Limbe Stadium.
Mali manager Mohamed Magassouba is expected to have Southampton ace Moussa Djenepo back in contention after missing the game against Mauritania through suspension due to a second consecutive yellow card.
Djenepo is expected to return to midfield and team up with Brighton star Yves Bissouma, who is still getting a lot of interest from Premier League giants..
Meanwhile, Equatorial Guinea manager Juan Micha may have to make a late call regarding Dorian Hanza’s fitness.
Hanza picked up an injury against Sierra Leone last time out and may have to miss this historic Last-16 encounter with the Eagles.
Micha is likely to name an unchanged back four following some solid defensive displays in the group stage.
Therefore, Basilio Ndong, Saul Coco, Estaban Orozco and Carlos Akapo could line up in front of goalkeeper Jesus Owono
