Mali and Guinea ended their Africa Cup of Nations group campaign with yet another draw and must now await the drawing of lots to see who advances to the quarterfinals.

Mali captain Seydou Keita had a penalty saved at Estadio de Mongomo today as both teams played out a third successive 1-1 draw in Group D and cannot be separated in the standings.

The draw will be held in Malabo tomorrow, the Confederation of African Football said.

Kevin Constant’s 14th-minute penalty put Guinea ahead at halftime but Modibo Maiga equalised for Mali shortly after the break.

Ivory Coast finished top of the group with a 1-0 win over Cameroon in Malabo which eliminated the losers.
