Albion forward Percy Tau suffered late heartbreak at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Mbark Boussoufa's 90th minute goal for Morocco last night has left South Africa sweating on not being overtaken as one of the four best third-placed finishes in the group stages to qualify for the last 16.

South Africa needed to avoid defeat in last night's encounter in Cairo after losing to Ivory Coast and beating Namibia in their other group games.

Meanwhile, Leon Balogun has owned up to an error in Nigeria's shock 2-0 defeat by Madagascar.

The Albion defender, speaking after the match, said: "I made one mistake that led to a goal. I think I defended everything I needed to defend, I know people will now only focus on that mistake.

"It is football and these things happen and we're all human beings. I'm not a robot."

Nigeria were already through to the last 16 along with Gaetan Bong's Cameroon, who play Benin today in their final group fixture.

Balogun responded to his critics on Twitter this morning, taking full responsibility for his error but vowing to recover from it.
