Day seven of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations saw Senegal secured top spot in Group C, after they came from behind to hold South Africa. This was the second group game and the stakes involved in the game were high for both sides.
The first half was lacklustre in quality and went into the interval with a 0 - 0 score, although Bafana Bafana had the best of the chances, but were unable to capitalise.
The second-half was a lot more entertaining; it only took about two minutes after the second half whistle before South Africa grabbed the lead through Oupa Manyisa, when he struck home from around eight yards in the 47th minute.
The Teranga Lions upped the tempo and pushed for a leveller. They came close when Southampton's Saido Mane had a goal disallowed for offside, but Kara Mbodji equalised with a header, 13 minutes after Manyisa's goal, while Jackson Mabokgwane, South African goalkeeper, strayed off his goal-line.
From there, both sides fought to get all three points, knowing what is at stake, but none could deliver.
So, how does Group C table look after the second group games? All is pretty much wide open; all teams are capable of qualifying to the next round of the competition and all will depend on the final group games.
The Teranga Lions lead the group with four points and will qualify for the quarter-finals if they draw with Algeria in their final group game.
The Black Stars and the Desert Foxes, who are the favourite to go to the next stage, are only a point behind Senegal, with three points, as Ghana beat Algeria in the earlier game on Friday.
The Bafana Bafana are at the bottom of the group with only one point; they will rue the fact that this was the second game in a row that they threw away a lead, having lost 3-1 to the Desert Foxes in their opening match. They will have the most difficult job to qualify for the quarter - finals, although there is a mathematical chance that they can still make it, but their fate in the competition is now in the hands of other teams. #Football
