[AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS] Mali came back from four goals down with 11 minutes to play and tied host Angola, 4-4, in Sunday's opening game at the Africa Cup of Nations. "In my 42-year career as coach, this is the first time something like this has happened," Angola's Portuguese coach, Manuel Jose, said. "We were supposed to win this game but we gave up in the end."

Barcelona's Seydou Keita came off the bench to score the first goal and one of two goals in stoppage time.

Sevilla's Frederic Kanoute made it 4-2, and and Mustapha Yatabare of French club Clermont Foot had the equalizer.

Angola scored two goals in each half, getting two goals on headers from  Saudi Arabia-based striker Flavio in the first half and penalty kicks from Gilberto and Manucho in the second half.
