2010 World Cup: Kanoute scores as Mali fight back to beat Benin

Mali 3 – Benin 1 (2010 World Cup qualifier, June 21, 2009) Mali started badly going down to a goal from Benin’s Seidath Tchomogo in the 12th minute from a corner. But the scores were level 10 minutes later when Modibo Maiga fired home. Mamadou Diallo put Mali into the lead sliding the ball in from close range in the second half, and then with seven minutes remaining Fredi Kanoute scored a diving header to confirm the Eagles’ win.
