Serge Aurier gave the Ivorians an early lead when he knocked in a rebound after Max Gradel's free kick had been parried into his path by home goalkeeper Abel Mamo.

Yet Ethiopia were level on 16 minutes as Surafel Dagnachew's free kick was deflected in off the wall, before Shemeles Bekele shrugged off...

Madagascar, a country with little football tradition and who had not been expected to progress beyond the group stage on their first appearance at the finals, held out until the second half when they were undone by Ferjani Sassi's deflected shot.

Youssef Msakni added a second on the hour for the Carthage...

Madagascar's first Africa Cup of Nations has been magical, but they're not done yet

Madagascar fans back in Antananarivo have been rooting for their tiny national team all summer long and are ready for a last 16 game few thought they'd reach.

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt -- Nicolas Dupuis' cheeks blush a little, not much but enough to notice, when he is asked how he feels about Madagascar's rise from obscurity in reaching the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations.

"I'm very proud for myself, certainly," he says. "Very proud. For me, it's something very new. But most of all I'm very proud of all the players and how well they've done. It's wonderful that football in Madagascar is now being recognised."

Madagascar pulled off one of the great shocks of the Africa Cup of Nations finals when they upset Nigeria 2-0 on Sunday to finish top of Group B and advance to the knockout stages.

Lalaina Nomenjanahary took advantage of sloppy defending by Leon Balogun to open the scoring in the 13th minute...
