[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
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
first half and penalty kicks from Gilberto
in the second half.
