African Cup Of Nations Watch

Ivory Coast 2-3 Algeria (Cabinda)
Sunday, Jan 24
Emmanuel Eboue had seen his last kick off a ball in this year’s African Cup of Nations before Algeria dumped out the Ivory Coast. The Arsenal man’s red card against Ghana meant he missed this knock-out game.
Kader Keita 89th minute belter looked to have put the Elephants through 2-1, but substitute Madjid Bougherra last gasp header sent the game to extra-time. It was Hameur Bouazza who grabbed the winner for underdogs Algeria.
Algeria will now face the winner of tonight’s games between Egypt and Cameroon (featuring Alex Song). Eboue must now return home to his London club.
