Mali have a curious record at the Africa Cup of Nations finals, having only made five appearances in the tournament's history, but reaching the semifinals on four of those occasions.

The record was four from four before they bowed out in the first round of the 2008 championship in Ghana, though that was only on goal-difference in a tough group that also included Cote d'Ivoire and Nigeria.

Their best-ever showing was way back in 1972 when they lost 3-2 in the final to Congo. They next appeared in the championship in 1994 in Tunisia, when they lost in the semifinals to Zambia.

They again made the last four in 2002, an event they hosted, but lost comprehensively to eventual champions Cameroon in the semis.

They were back again two years later in Tunisia, but this time it was Morocco who put paid to their championship ambitions in the semifinals.
