And it looked as though there would be no way back for Guinea, only for Ibrahima Sory Sankhon to force penalty kicks with a goal in the 121st minute.
But there would be no fairytale for Guinea as Ley Matampi saved from Mohamed Youla to secure a 5-4 spot-kick win.
Mali and Ivory Coast meet in the second semifinal on Thursday.
