Minute   Description
90' +2 Abdou Razak Traoré enters the game and replaces J. Pitroipa.
Pitroipa is taken off with Abdou Traore replacing him for the final moments.
90' Diakite grabs another cross and this match, and tournament, are almost done for Zambia. Would take a big turnaround of fortunes for them to save themselves now.
Four minutes of added time here. Zambia need a goal to go through and knock Burkina Faso out. Bakary Kone has a lot of blood coming out of his nose, and they need his back on the pitch.
The ball bounces around on the edge of the Burkina Faso area but there is no one there to put it in. Into the final 30 seconds now...
CHANCE FOR ZAMBIA! Centre-half Sunzu finds himself in an attacking position but his volley on the turn flies harmlessly wide. Last chance surely gone for Zambia.
88' Zambia still pushing forward but they cannot force it home. Crosses are being aimed at Mbesuma but they cannot find the big striker.
86' With Nigeria looking set to go 2-0, Zambia have a chance with a bit of pinball in the six-yard box, but they cannot force it home. Looking ominous for the reigning holders.
83' Bance with another header for Burkina Faso but it falls harmlessly wide. They would still top the group should it remain the same.
80' J. Sakuwaha enters the game and replaces C. Lungu.
Burkina Faso pushing forward and Bance heads wide. Chisamba Lungu is off for Zambia, with Jonas Sakuwaha on in his place.
79' Mbesuma heads straight at Diakite, and with Nigeria taking the lead, Zambia must now score to go through. If they do, Burkina Faso will be out. Massive ten minutes to come.
77' Bance goes on a rare forray forward for Burkina Faso, and wins a corner from Musonda. Mweene collects the set-piece though.
74' Kalaba cuts inside on the edge of the box as Zambia search for that illusive goal, but his effort is wayward.
73' Burkina Faso goalkeeper Diakite is receiving treatment on the pitch. That isn't good news as he is second choice as it is, though he has returned to his feet now.
