The Elephants levelled the match through a Lacina Traore goal in the 13th minute. The Ivorians turned the match thanks to a cracking free-kick from Yaya Toure. Ten minutes before the break Tanzania levelled the match 2-2 when a left win g cross was volley home by Thomas Ulimwengu. The first half ended on a controversial note as Gervinho ran half the length of the pitch before winning a penalty, and Yaya Toure bagged his second from the spot.
