Oumar Diakite, with an extraordinary strike from outside the box after a corner, secured the win in the 122nd minute.
The dramatic turn of events not only propelled Ivory Coast to the semi-finals but also set the stage for wild celebrations among the players and fans.

Following his crucial goal, Diakite’s exuberant celebrations resulted in him being sent off. His dismissal was swiftly followed by Hamari Traore of Mali, who surrounded the referee in protest.
The chaotic scenes further escalated as officials had to be escorted off the field for their safety.
