Mali on Saturday qualified for the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations after beating South Africa 3-1 in a penalty shootout, knocking the host country out of the tournament.

Goalkeeper Soumaila Diakite made two saves in the shootout as Mali ousted host South Africa in the African Cup of Nations quarterfinals with a 3-1 win on penalties on Saturday.

It came down to penalties after the teams drew 1-1 in regulation and were scoreless in extra time.

Tokelo Rantie opened the scoring for South Africa in regulation with a close-range shot in the 31st minute and Seydou Keita netted the equalizer with a header in the 58th to send the match into extra time.

Midfielders Dean Furman and May Mahlangu had their shots saved by Diakite, and striker Lehlohonolo Majoro sent his shot wide for Mali to reach the semifinals a second straight time.
