    FT: Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    That's it from me - thanks for joining our coverage.

    So South Africa have triumphed against the odds and dumped Mohamed Salah's Egypt out of their home Africa Cup of Nations.

    Until next time...

    FT: Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    Well who saw that coming?

    The hosts and the holders have been knocked out on the same day!


    Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    The referee brings the game to an end and Egypt have been knocked out of their own tournament.

    Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    Thulani Hlatshwayo goes into the book for a late tackle just inside his own half. He takes the booking and jogs straight back into position.

  5. Post update

    Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    Four minutes to be added on here. Egypt are running out of ideas.

  6. Post update

    Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    There are just two minutes left of normal time and there is anguish on the faces of the Egyptians.

    Mohamed Salah gestures to the referee by pointing to his wrist as Ronwen Williams takes his time over a goal kick.

    Time ticking down.

  7. GOAL - Egypt 0-1 South Africa

    Thembinkosi Lorch

    The Cairo International Stadium is stunned into silence.

    Egypt do start committing bodies forward but South Africa win the ball and pump it long.

    Lebo Mothiba plays the ball square to Thembinkosi Lorch on the counter-attack, and the midfielder calmly slots the ball into the corner.

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    With under 10 minutes remaining, you'd expect the hosts to start throwing the kitchen sink at Bafana Bafana, but it's South Africa in possession.

    Olusola: A South Africa win would be great for Nigeria, and that should naturally get the Egyptians rooting for the Super Eagles to beat the Bafana Bafana


    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    Bongani Zungu becomes the third name in the book for diving in on Amr Warda.

    But Egypt waste the free-kick and South Africa can clear their lines once more.

  11. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    Mahmoud Trezeguet controls the long ball with his heel inside the South African box but he is soon crowded out by the yellow shirts.

    The ball is cleared and the anxiety levels rise again inside the stadium.

  12. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    Great build-up play by Bafana Bafana.

    The visitors play some neat one touch football to work the space deep inside the Egyptian half before Thembinkosi Lorch is fed inside the box.

    But the midfielder fires his shot straight at the legs of the goalkeeper and the chance disappears.

  13. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    South Africa finally change their free-kick taker.

    Percy Tau whips in a testing ball which is met by Thulani Hlatshwayo, but his header just drifts wide.


    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    Ayman Ashraf goes into the book for a late tackle on Kamohelo Mokotjo. South Africa have the free-kick.

  15. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    Egypt waste the corned and South Africa go down the other end and win a free-kick by the near touchline.

    Remarkably, Sandile Hlanti is stood over it, but his delivery is poor and Egypt head clear.

    Surely someone else in yellow can take free-kicks?

  16. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    It's nearly calamity at the back for South Africa as Thamsanqa Mkhize inaccurately heads back to his goalkeeper, forcing Ronwen Williams to dive and palm the ball behind with red shirts running through.

  17. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    South Africa win a free-kick in the Egypt half but Sandile Hlanti's free-kick is sliced high and wide into the stands.

    I'd be surprised if he takes another one after that.

  18. Post update

    Egypt 0-0 South Africa

    That was the chance.

    Mohamed Salah picks the perfect ball for Mahmoud Trezeguet, who is bearing down in goal, but he can only guide his shot straight at Ronwen Williams.

    He should really be hitting the back of the net from there.
