Host South Africa out of African Nations

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa - The dreams of hosts South Africa and the tiny Cape Verde Islands came to a shattering halt on Saturday when they were knocked out of the African Nations Cup by Mali and Ghana respectively in the quarter-finals.

Mali, seeking their first Nations Cup title, kept their hopes alive by beating South Africa 3-1 on penalties, after the match finished 1-1 at the end of extra time, while Ghana, aiming for a long-awaited fifth crown, beat Cape Verde 2-0.

South Africa were eliminated after losing a shootout in Durban. Cape Verde lost to two Mubarak Wakaso goals in Port Elizabeth. Reuters
