Ivory Coast players celebrate Max Gradel’s equaliser against Mali

Malabo (Equatorial Guinea), Jan 25 (IANS) Max Gradel scored a second-half equaliser for Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) helping the Cup favourites rally to draw 1-1 with Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

Bakary Sako had given Mali a surprise lead in the seventh minute with the Ivory Coast trailing until the 86th minute, when substitute Gradel rescued the team on Saturday night, reports Xinhua.

A few hours later, Cameroon were held to a draw by the same score by Guinea in Group D, meaning all four teams in the group have the same points and the same goal difference after four straight 1-1 draws.

Cote d'Ivoire will face Cameroon on Wednesday while Mali and Guinea will take on each other on the same day.
