Ivory Coast are through to the last eight of the Africa Cup of Nations and one of the continent's stars is attracting more followers in London

The Elephants edged Mali 1-0 in a closely-fought encounter in the Round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations at the New Suez Stadium on Monday evening.

Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha scored the only goal of the game in the 76th minute. The ball somehow bounced over the Mali defenders and ended up in Zaha's path, who didn't waste time to place the gift in the back of the net.

We can follow the Twitter reaction to Zaha's goal below. There are also many Arsenal fans keenly following Zaha's performances in Afcon.

Some fans want him to lose so that can make up his mind and sign for the Gunners. Other fans are licking their lips watching him, or worried about whether Arsenal will meet Palace's evaluation.

We provide you with two bonus videos, a discussion of Zaha's evaluation and the player himslf discussing his link to Arsenal.

Back to the game itself, SuperSport TV provides a video of his goal against Mali. Caf shows us the atmosphere in the stadium, and we also see a video of Ivory Coast fans celebrating back home.
