Ivory Coast and Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe has been handed the Man of the Match award for his performance against Sierra Leone on Sunday night.

Sierra Leone scored a dramatic equaliser deep into stoppage time to snatch a 2-2 draw against Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Elephants looked to be cruising into the last 16 but a howler from their goalkeeper Badra Sangare in the 93rd minute allowed Alhadji Kamara to tap in from three yards.

Sangare fumbled a back-header and Steven Caulker stole in to cross for Alhaji Kamara, who slipped but just about managed to scuff the ball into the net.

The injury is a major concern for Ivory Coast, who are already without first-choice goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo after was suspended by FIFA on the eve of the tournament over an alleged doping violation.

Ivory Coast have four points from their opening two games but face defending champions Algeria in their final group game.

It had looked like Nicolas Pepe had scored the winner for Ivory Coast with a bit of quality on 65 minutes.

Pepe and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha were recalled to the Ivory Coast team and Zaha had earlier earned his side an early penalty when he was brought down in the box.

Pepe put Ivory Coast back in front before an incredible finish saw Sierra Leone rescue a point at the death when Kamara scored his first international goal in seven years.
