Minute   Description
90' +5 P. Cissé has scored a goal for Senegal!
3-1! THE LIONS OF TERANGA HAVE A GLIMMER OF HOPE! The Ivory Coast defence fail to deal with a long ball pumped into the box and Papiss Cisse reacts quickest to smash it past Barry who cannot keep it out despite getting a hand to it. How important could that goal prove to be for Senegal?

90' +4 G. Serey Die gets yellow.
Serey Die picks up a late booking as he cynically prevents a Senegal counter attack. Can the Lions of Teranga make this set-piece count?
90' +2 Senegal strive to pull one back but Mane's cross from the left is cut out brilliantly by Aurier. They will need to produce a much-improved performance in the return leg if they are to stand any chance of making it to Brazil.
90' Lacina Traore goes close to a fifth goal in seven internationals as his header glances inches wide of Coundoul's near post following a corner from the right.
89' M. Gradel enters the game and replaces Y. Gervinho.
88' Gervinho has been the standout performer on the field today and he receives a brilliant reception from the crowd as he is replaced by Max Gradel for the final minutes.
87' SO CLOSE TO 4-0! Traore dribbles down the right before his accurate cross picks out Yaya Toure on the edge of the box. The Manchester City maestro takes a touch before bending a shot agonisingly past the post.
86' C. Tioté gets yellow.
Tiote is no stranger to a caution and his trip on N'Doye earns a yellow card from the referee. The Newcastle midfielder vents his despair as he is now suspended for the return leg.
85' The Senegal defence are afraid to dive into a challenge on Gervinho and he dribbles into the box before picking out Yaya Toure whose first touch again lets him down, meaning that he is dispossessed by the backtracking Gueye.
84' Saivet whips in a teasing cross from the right but Kouyate is adjudged to have pushed Aurier in the back as his header goes inches past the post.
