After missing the last World Cup in Russia, now Algeria are very motivated to prove that they are among the best teams in Africa. And they are doing it. So far the Desert Foxes are having a very good tournament in Egypt. They won all of their matches in the group stage, while against Guinea at the 1/8-finals they achieved a fourth consecutive win. It was a little bit more difficult against Ivory Coast at the 1/4-finals, when Algeria needed penalty kicks in order to progress.
The regular time between Algeria and Ivory Coast ended with a 1-1 draw. Sofiane Feghouli opened the score for the Desert Foxes, but Jonathan Kodjia equalised for the Elephants. The game went to penalties, where Bony and Die missed and it led to Ivory Coast’s defeat.
Meanwhile Nigeria enjoyed a late goal which decided their 1/4-final against South Africa. The Super Eagles had to be careful in this clash, because before this South Africa showed their strenght against Egypt, eliminating the hosts of the competition.
The game started very well for Nigeria as Samuel Chukweze opened the score for the Super Eagles, but in the second half Bafana Bafana managed to equalise. It was Bongani Zungu who scored. We all expected to see extra time, but in the 89th minute William Troost-Ekong scored after an assist from Moses Simon and sent his team to the 1/2-finals.
It shall be a fascinating 1/2-final game in the Cup of Nations between Algeria and Nigeria on Sunday. It’s really hard to pick a favourite here. We wish you good luck in our vip soccer bets.
