Sierra Leone scored a thrilling injury-time equalizer against Ivory Coast to earn a 2-2 draw at the Africa Cup of Nations in Douala.
The Elephants had been cruising, but a shocking error by Badra Sangare opened the door for Alhadji Kamara to slot home.
Sangare mishandled a back-header and could only watch in horror as Kamara clinched the Leone Stars' second consecutive Group E draw.
This implies they have a good chance of reaching the last 16.
Sierra Leone has two points from two matches, while Ivory Coast leads the group with four points.
However, the Elephants play defending champions Algeria on Thursday (16:00 GMT) in a make or mar encounter.
Both teams contributed to an intriguing affair that saw Ivory Coast miss an early penalty but then take a two-goal lead before Sierra Leone responded in a dramatic manner.
Man of the match: Nicola Pepe (Ivory Coast)
