All times stated are UK

  1. YELLOW CARD

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Tunisia captain Youssef Msakni gets himself into the book for clipping the heel of Mubarak Wakaso. Seems a soft one.

    Who will win the Africa Cup of Nations and why?

    Rollnd:The Nigeria team is a good one, and I can bet that they are the strongest team left in the tournament. Win! Go Super Eagles!!!

  3. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Madagascar await the winners of this tie. Unless we have a goal in the second half then we’re heading for extra time and then maybe even penalties, just as Madagascar’s game with DR Congo did yesterday.

  4. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Just the one shot on target from either side in the opening 45.

  5. ‘No hand, no hand’

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

  6. HALF-TIME

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    And the Ghana players are still remonstrating with the officials as they leave the field. Did not seem to be too much wrong with that disallowed goal. Certainly not the handball that was signaled by the referee. That’s not the last we’ve heard of that.

  7. ‘Hugely controversial’

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    John Bennett

    BBC World Service at Ismalia Stadium

    Everyone inside the stadium is confused as to why the
    Ghana goal was ruled out. Looked fine to me from the stands.

    If the Black Stars
    lose that will be hugely controversial. By the way, this is the last game
    without VAR at this Cup of Nations.

  8. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Controversy as Ghana have a goal chalked off. That corner conceded by Hassen Mouez so nearly comes back to haunt Tunisia. They fail to clear the corner and it falls to Thomas Partey, who gives it to Jordan Ayew and his low cross is backheeled into the net by Andre Ayew.

    But the ex-Swansea and West Ham man’s celebrations are cut short by an assistant’s flag. The referee signals that there was a handball in the build-up, maybe by Partey, but no matter what the goal does not stand. Doesn’t seem to be a handball, although Partey may have actually been offside.

    We don’t have VAR until the next round so no review and the goal does not stand.

  9. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Afriyie Acquah unleases one from 25 yards out and he’s struck it well. It’s going wide but Hassen Mouez takes no chances as he pushes it wide for a corner.

  10. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Another case of what might have been. This time from Ghana. Samuel Owusu is on the right corner of the penalty area, he jinks inside to create some space for the cross but again the delivery is not up to what was needed and it’s easily headed away.

  11. Msakni to make a mark?

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    John Bennett

    BBC World Service at Ismailia Stadium

    Tunisia winger Youssef Msakni has always perplexed me. I
    saw him play at my first ever Cup of Nations in 2012 when he was 21 and was
    raving about him for months.

    I felt sure he would be a star player for a big
    European side or at least try his hand in one if the big European leagues.
    (There were rumours of Arsenal interest at one stage). But it never happened.
    He chose to play in Qatar.

    Injury robbed him of a chance to shine at last
    year’s World Cup and although he did move to Europe in January it was to
    unglamorous Eupen. He’s probably got loads of cash in the bank but I will
    always wonder what might have been.

  12. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Tight and tense at the moment. Tunisia have a half chance as Oussama Hadadi breaks down the left wing and he tries to dink a ball into the middle but can’t get past the man at the near post.

    Who will win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and why?

    Ideozu-Frank Sampson:With the Egyptians gone, it is perfectly fixed for Nigeria to win it! The Egyptian crowd was so intimidating. Hopefully Tunisia will follow suit! We can beat all the rest of the teams every night and day, Ghana inclusive.

  14. Feel the music

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    John Bennett

    BBC World Service at Ismailia Stadium

    It’s a subdued atmosphere at the Ismailia stadium so
    thank goodness for the Ghana fans behind the goal to my left in the yellow and
    blue seats.

    It’s been a constant party over there with signing, trumpets and
    drums. You can’t help getting caught up in the music. Not a whole lot to cheer
    so far but sides are looking a bit nervy at the back.

  15. Post update

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    John talked about the importance of Thomas Partey in an attacking role (20:18 entry), but he has just been superb at the back, getting a vital clearance as Ghana defended a corner with Tunisia’s Ellyes Skhiri waiting to pounce.

  16. Get Involved #bbcfootball

    Who will win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and why?

    Michael Ighodaro:I think Nigeria has the best chance of winning the cup. The only strong opposition they have is Senegal.

  17. Partey time?

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    John Bennett

    BBC World Service at Ismailia stadium

    Interesting to see Thomas Partey starting really high up
    the field for Ghana – almost in a number 10 role.

    He was disappointing in the
    first two games in the deeper role that he operates in for Atletico Madrid but
    in the second-half against Guinea-Bissau pushed forward and it improved the
    team.

    Now against Tunisia he should get the ball in areas where he can really
    hurt the North African side.

  18. #Afcon2019is there for the taking. Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Senegal haven’t impressed me! Why does Appiah keep starting John Boye? See another needless yellow card he just received? Is Appiah serious at all? This John Boye is not serious! I won’t be shocked if he gets sent off again!

    Ghana 0-0 Tunisia

    Ghana have a free-kick just outside the left corner of the and Andy Yiadom swings it into the box but Hassen Mouez does what all good goalkeeper should so and gathers safely. The goalkeeper is then needlessly tripped by Ghana’s John Boye who picks up a silly yellow.

    He is quickly joined in the book by Tunisia’s Dylan Bronn for complaining.
