It ends two apiece. Be sure to catch Ivory Coast's clash with Burkina Faso in an hour's time, till then good bye!
At the other end, Manucho tries his luck with a speculative lob from distance but his effort is narrowly off target with El Hadi backtracking.
Sudan are dominating in the final stages here as they apply pressure on the Angolan box. One gets the sense this game could still yet deliver a late twist.
Sudan break on the counter, three versus three, but Fernandes saves at his near post to snuff out the danger. The Falcons of Jediane are playing with greater confidence now. That equaliser has certainly galvanised them.
Sudan goal! Basheer gets his second as he pounces on a defensive error in the box to fire home from close range!
Nazar receives some medical attention after coming off second best in a gritty exchange. He's limping slightly but looks to be alright.
Angola's Rafael is booked. Play has been restricted largely in the midfield trenches of late with either side lacking that telling touch in the final third.
Djalma is brought down by Hamid Nazar in the Sudan box and a penalty is deservedly awarded! Manucho steps up.
Tahir threatens again as he thunders a first-time volley wide of the target. There will be one minute of optional time.
Muhannad Tahir drills in a free-kick from the right but the Angolan defence does well to head clear.
Angola's Djalma has a shot cleared off the line after breaking down the left and squeezing the ball past Akram El Hadi from a tight angle.
Sudan goal! Mohamed Youssif Basheer rises superbly to head home the equaliser following a cross from the right!
Manucho, who is making an aerial nuisance of himself, fails to capitalise on a promising one-two on the edge of the area as the ball gets stuck under him allowing Sudan to clear.
Fernandes keeps out a decent shot with a regulation stop. Good positioning there from the Angolan keeper.
Angolan goalkeeper Carlos Fernandes comes off his line confidently to collect a ball over the top. There's plenty of space out there at the moment, with both sides shifting between defence and attack rather readily.
Sudan have been enjoying the better share of possession early on here but Angola won't mind thanks to Manucho, who of course netted the winner against Burkina Faso last time out.
Angola goal! Manucho catches Najem Abdullah in possession before racing clear and finishing with a clinical strike in the corner!

Angola have been boosted by the availability of striker Nando Rafael. Rafael, a Germany u-21 international, missed out against Burkina Faso as he awaited FIFA approval for switching allegiances, which has now come through.
Angola, who hosted the previous AFCON, beat Burkina Faso 2-1 in their first test, with Real Valladolid ace Manucho netting a 68th minute winner for the Black Antelopes.
It's the second match for both sides. The Falcons of Jediane lost their opener to tournament contenders Ivory Coast, but can draw inspiration from the narrow 1-0 scoreline.
