Referee: Daniel Bennett (South Africa)

Serge Gakpe had opened the scoring for Togo on 13 minutes, after being played in by Adebayor. It was just reward for the Sparrow Hawks, who had dominated the opening exchanges of the match.

Adebayor missed a gilt-edged opportunity shortly afterwards, firing wide when Gakpe cut the ball back from the byline.

Tunisia, the 2004 champions, gradually forced their way back into the game and won a penalty when Walid Hichri went down a little too easily under challenge from Dare Nibombe.

Crucial moment: With Togo goalkeeper Kossi Agassa diving the wrong way, Tunisia's Khaled Mouelhi saw his penalty cannon back off the postMouelhi sent Togo goalkeeper Kossi Agassa the wrong way to find the bottom right-hand corner of the goal.

In the second half, with Tunisia pushing for the goal that would see them leapfrog Togo and reach the quarter-finals, it was Adebayor who had a golden chance but his header from Floyd Ayite's cross hit the woodwork.

However, the Carthage Eagles would get their opportunity.

With 12 minutes remaining, the referee awarded them another soft penalty and flashed yellow cards at Adebayor, Agassa and Ayitte for their vocal protests.

That's how it's done: Mouelhi had earlier scored from the penalty spot to bring Tunisia level at 1-1Extended stay: Tottenham will be without Emmanuel Adebayor for a little longer after Togo made the knockout stages for the first time
