Full-time: Kenya 0-3 Senegal - Senegal go through to the round of 16 where they meet Uganda; Kenya must wait and see what happens when the two remaining groups conclude tomorrow. DR Congo are also through.
Diatta slides a glorious pass in behind the Kenya defence and Konate dashes onto it, but the keeper forces him wide and he can't then pick a pass.
Konate mugs Mohammed and has about 63 team-mates screaming for the pass that'll put them in. But he wants of a goal of one's own, so drives low; Matasi saves easily.
There'll be three added minutes.
This has been a pretty impressive show from Senegal. Better teams will give them more space in which to play - something that they might just regret.
Game of opinions, Saint.
To qualify, I think Kenya need Cameroon to beat Benin, Mali to beat Angola, and Tunisia to avoid defeat against Mauritania. That's not unlikely, but if that doesn't happen I don't think goal difference can save them.
Olunga's had very little of the ball, so it's no wonder that when he gets it, he wants to score, turning to hammer a shot from 20 yards that Gomis turns over the bar.
I'm not sure if Senegal look like potential winners, but they have one of the best, if not the best centre-back paring in the competition, and mane, Sarr and Niang can cause problems for anyone.
Change for Kenya, Ochieng replacing Masika.
Change for Senegal, Diatta replacing Gueye.
GOAL! Kenya 0-3 Senegal (Mane pen) That's more like it. Mane opens his body and punches a low finish to the keeper's left.
How will Mane take this one?
PENALTY AND A RED CARD! Otieno, already booked and out of any last-16 tie, slides in on Sarr, introducing studs to shin. That's a straight red really, but he "gets away" with two yellows. Kenya are falling apart!
I think Kenya might be playing with two strikers now
Change for Kenya: Avire replaces Odhiambo.
Change for Senegal: Konate replaces Niang.
If thoe score stays like this, Kenya will be worse off than South Africa, by a goal.
GOAL! Kenya 0-2 Senegal (Mane) Redemption! Kenya win a corner and push forward, but then one punt puts Mane under a b all with Mohammed. Mane easily nudges the defender off the ball - that's very poor from him - races through the middle, and slides a finish under Matasi. Senegal will finish second in the group, DRC will go through, and Kenya will have to worry and wait.
Kenya are stepping it up; do they have the quality, and will Senegal get nervous?
Masika seizes on a loose pass from Saivet and charges forward towards Koulibaly, lifting a cross into the middle, but Kouyate is there to deal.
Okumu is late on Niang, but barely touches him. He's booked, amid much consternation.
Gueye inserts a leg between Wanyama's legs, and there's a brief pause while he recovers.
WHAT A GOAL! Kenya 0-1 Senegal (Sarr) Poor Matasi. Niang plays a one-two with Gassama and the keeper fumbles his cross ... but there's still a lot of work to do, Sarr chesting, swivelling and absolutely lamping a rising finish high inside the near post. If Kenya don't score, DR Congo are through!
The free-kick is bungled clear and the ball drops perfectly into the path of Odhiamo, who clouts a swerve that Gomis does well to tip away, given how little he's had to do.
Mane runs into Omolo just as he's about to shoot and is booked.
Nice from Senegal moving the ball from right to left before Ciss crosses and Niang controls, outside the box, before thrashing a shit straight at Matasi.
Saivet whips the free-kick in and Otieno heads clear.
Ciss is playing really well, and he collects a diag, controls, then lifts the ball over Ayub, who pulls him down right on the edge of the box. Ayub is booked and Senegal have a free-kick close to the by-line.
Kenya win a corner which Niang heads clear and Senegal set off on the break. Eventually, Mane finds Niang, but he can't find a crossing angle nor force ball into shins to win a corner.
Saivet moves inside from the left and with no one seeking to close down, wallops a dipper that Matasi has to punch away. Decent effort.
Sarr bousts down the right and slings over a luscious-looking cross ... and Ndiaye's up! But it's just a little high for him, and the ball skims off his forehead and away.
Koulibaly hits a brilliant switch from centre to right. Nothing comes of it, but that's his second of the half and is a good way of moving the Kenyans out of their low block.
Senegal are moving the ball nicely, but Kenya are sitting deep and making it hard for them.
Senegal win a corner down the right and Saivet drives it in, seeking Koulibaly, but Matasi hurls himself into a punch and does enough.
The toast. I love that.
Senegal huddle earnestly, then get the second away going.
Back come the teams.
Kenya started quite well but Senegal then took over and should be at least a goal ahead. It's hard to see them not finding enough in the second half, because Kenya have nothing for them.
Half-time: Kenya 0-0 Senegal. Elsewhere, Algeria have just made it 3-0 against Tanzania, Ounas scoring his second.
Senegal win a free-kick and Gueye drives a diag, picking out Sarr in the box. He contorts really well to head goalwards, but Matasi is there to tip onto the bar. Excellent behaviour all round.
There'll be two added minutes.
Olunga is down having jarred his ankle fouling Ndiaye. He's carried off but sitting on the stretcher, so might be good to return.
Adam Ounas has put Algeria further ahead. They'll top Group C with three wins from three.
Mane is trying to redeem himself, jigging down the left and crossing beyond the back post; the ball ends up behind for a goalkick.
....Saivet clumps his free-kick directly into the wall.
Kenya are struggling to get out of their own half now, and when Koulibaly finds Gueye, Omolo hauls him down, 25 yards out, left of centre. It's a bit far over for a shot...
Matasi is limping, but carries on for the now.
Gassama slings over a cross that Okumo misses - he's not having much of a night - and Koulibaly backs away, allowing the ball to bounce, before spanking a shot just wide of the near post.
Elsewhere, Islam Slimani has put Algeria ahead against Tanzania.
This is a Ghanaian tune I think, but a banger is a banger.
Some finish from him.
Anyway, why take a penalty like that. Laces, leather, stanchion.
If Senegal win this, DR Congo qualify for the last-16. They might have some thoughts about Sadio Mane.
OH MY DAYS! Mane saunters up to the ball, dead cocky because he knows he'll score ... but his body-shape tells Matasi exactly where it's going, bottom left, and the keeper saves easily. What a silly billy Mane is.
PENALTY TO SENEGAL! Ciss sashays outside Mohammed, who can't help but kick him, and it's an easy call for the ref - though he's missed others.
You can feel it, Senegal are coming in the air tonight. Niang diddles Okumo on the turn and when he's fouled the ball rolls free to Sarr, who squares for Gueye, arriving into the box. He spanks a shot, but Matasi did really well to get close to him, taking the shot in the midriff.
All Senegal now, and they win a free-kick which Saivet curls in; Niang charges it but can't quite impart head to ball and Kenya get it away.
Loooovely from Niang, beating Okumo at inside-left, rolling studs and swaying hips, before rifling a shot against Matasi. He might've passed, but you can't chastise him for taking the opportunity he created - it all happened so fast.
Senegal are starting to impose themselves.
Ciss crosses from the left and Kouyate misses his header; so Okumo, who has his eyes closed, wears it on his arm. That's a penalty if ever I've seen one but the ref interprets to the contrary.
The pitch at the 30 June Stadium is not good - hard, crumbling and probably with very aggressive grass. That part of the world is great, but its football pitches are viscous.
Ciss burrows down the left and crosses for Mane, who hits the line and cuts back; the ball hits Odhiamo and falls for the arriving Saivet, but he bobbles his shot into the ground and against various bodies.
Tanzania-Algeria is still 0-0.
Otieno pumps into the box from the right, and Omolo leaps to chuck the head at it, but can't get a proper piece and Gomis collects easily.
Okumo is receiving treatment, after wearing a punch from Matasi, who was clearing the aforementioned corner.
Otieno wraps legs around Mane's on the slide, and rips him down. He's booked and will miss the last-16 tie if Kenya make it - silly behaviour. The free-kick comes to nowt.
Mohammed rattles Mane and escapes a card.
A long hump from Gomis is misjudged by Koulibaly, whose weak header goes to Ciss ... who responds with a weak header of his own, far too short for Gomis and Olunga is in! He lifts his shot over the keeper ... and wide, but the keeper takes him out in the follow-through! That should be a penalty, but the ref decides to the contrary.
Mane treads on the ball and falls over. It's fairly amusing.
First little sortie for Senegal, Sarr passing directly to Okumo.
Olunga is first to a ball over the top, arriving before Kouyate and turning to face goal, but Koulibaly is there to tidy up.
Senegal have barely had a kick so far.
The ball bounces about in midfield so Odhiambo takes matters into his own hands, shanking a shin that's straight at Gomis.
Niang rattles Omolo in centrefield, purely for the fun of it.
And away we go!
We're about ready...
It really is bizarre that Senegal have never won this thing. Kenta have never made it through the group stages.
Here come the teams!
Change for Senegal! Mendy, their keeper, injured himself in the warm-up, so Gomis of SPAL replaces him.
Senegal could really use a performance tonight. They're potential winners, and the best team at the end of a competition are rarely the best team in the group stages. But after tonight, there's little margin for error, nor time to locate groove.
Similarly, it looks like both sides will play 4-2-3-1.
In general, if you want to know how a team will line up, consult the Fifa or Uefa website ... but not Caf's, whose formations and personnel are not entirely accurate. I don't - for example - think that Cheikhou Kouyate is playing at right-back.
The best thing I saw today:
Talking of Cote d'Ivoire, I still fancy them to win this thing - if they can work out their best team. They rested Seri and Pepe this afternoon, which allowed Wilfried Zaha a turn, but I've no idea how he's being kept out by max Gradel otherwise.
Earlier today: thanks to late goal from their captain, Boussoufa, Morocco made it three wins from three, beating South Africa 1-0 in a mathc notable for Hakim Ziyech's strop on being substituted, while Cote d'Ivoire handled Namibia 4-1. Both winners progress, Morocco to face a third-place finisher and Cote d'Ivoire to face the winners of Group E - most likely, Mali. That would be a jazzer.
Senegal, meanwhile, lost 1-0 to Algeria last time out. They bring in Ciss, Gueye, Sarr and Saivet for Wague, N'Diayem, Balde and Diatta.
Ch ch ch changes: at right-back, Kenya replace Owino with Otieno, while further forward, Kahata and Olunga drop out with Omino and Olunga coming in.
Looking through the teams, this oughtn't to be close. Senegal have perhaps the best player in the competition, Sadio Mane, along with Kalidou Koulibaly, Idrissa Gueye and Ismaila Sarr. They'll play a 4-2-3-1, while Kenya, captained by Victor Wanyama, are playing 4-3-3.
Right, let's have some teams...
The second-placed team will meet Uganda next; if the third-placed team have done enough, they'll meet Egypt. So there's plenty of incentive to win this one.
The eagle-eyed geeks among you may have noticed that the group system here is the same as employed at Mexico '86, which means that after the top two finishers in each pool have progressed, four of six third-placed teams are required to complete the round of 16. Or, put another way, yes: it's a lot of games to get rid of not a lot of countries. Anyway, four points will be enough for that third place, so if this match is a draw, Senegal will take second and Kenya will also be through. If there's a positive result, those on the right side of it will move on and those on the wrong side of it will have to wait.
It's a big one, is this, this is. Algeria, who play /? Tanzania while this game is going on, are already through, but who will accompany them? Let's have some permutations...
Evening all, and welcome to Kenya v Senegal!
