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

A few hours later, Cameroon were held to the same score by Guinea in Group D, meaning four teams in the group have four straight 1-1 draws.

Cote d'Ivoire will face Cameroon Wednesday, as will Mali and Guinea.
