Bouna Time! for Senegal

Bouna Coundoul got the start for Senegal's final group stage African Cup of Nations match today against South Africa. For Senegal to advance they must win, have Angola and Tunisia not draw, and have the margin of victory in the two games combined be at least 4 goals. Follow the game live here.

UPDATE: In the 13th minute bad marking leads to a goal for South Africa

UPDATE2: From the BBC

1825: Sibusiso Zuma has a great chance to give South Africa the lead when a defensive mistake leads to a clear shot in the area but Senegal's Bouna Coundoul pulls off a remarkable save.

FINAL: 1-1 Senegal are eliminated. To add injury to insult, the BBC reported that near the end of the game there was an injury to Bouna that held up play for quite some time. It does not appear Bouna had to leave the game.

UPDATE3: It turns out the injury was to South African keeper Moeneeb Joseph, Bouna was not hurt.
