The two-time AFCON winners needed a win against C么te d鈥橧voire to advance into the next round, after picking just one point in their first two games.

But it was the Ivorians who emerged victors thanks to goals from Franck Kessie (22 minutes), Ibrahim Sangare (39 minutes) and Nicolas Pepe (54 minutes).

Algeria skipper missed the chance to score Algeria鈥檚 first of the competition but hit his penalty against the post.

And in the group鈥檚 other game, Sierra Leone鈥檚 hopes of progressing into the round of 16 was dashed, after they lost 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea.

The Leone Stars needed just a point to finish as one of the third best placed teams but Pablo Ganet鈥檚 38th minute strike ended their hopes.

Sierra Leone had a golden opportunity to draw level after they were awarded a penalty on 85 minutes but Kei Kamara missed.

The final standing in the group saw C么te d鈥橧voire finish top with seven points, Equatorial Guinea second with six points while Sierra Leone and Algeria were third and fourth with two and one points respectively.

C么te d鈥橧voire will now meet Egypt in the round of 16 on Wednesday, 26 January while Equatorial Guinea will wait for the winner of Group F.

    Hope we don’t face Tunisia the way things are going. Algeria were just impatient. Going for goal immediately the whistle was blown. And they paid for it dearly

      Nice wing play. I hope our wingers can learn from them about ball distribution and selflessness. Pepe was fantastic.

        We are meeting Gambia or Tunisia.

         
        • As it stands, both Tunisia and Gambia have qualified.

          They’re both playing for 2nd/3rd places.

          The SE can’t afford to feel pompous or over-confident against any of them.

          Best of luck to the SE

    1-2-3
    Bye bye Algerie!
    It’s been a shocking Afcon.
    If you predicted 2 weeks ago that Belmadi, Mahrez and company will fail to come out of their group, you would have been an object of mockery. Yet, here we are. The fearsome Algeria have been reduced to shivering, vulnerable fennecs.
    The minnows did not read the memo that Algeria is a strong side. The memo was sent, but the minnows tossed it into the waste basket.
    Now, teams like Gambia, Malawi, EG and Comoros are in the second round, while Algeria is out.
    As for Nigeria, a battle awaits us on Sunday against Tunisia. They may not be at there best, but they are always a formidable side. With FOCUS, INTENSITY AND DETERMINATION, we can overcome them.

    I hope super eagles watch civ beat Algeria from start to finish. You must play all this North Africa like wounded loins and follow them with ruggedity character from start to finish. If you want to win them, score them early goal so that you can provoke them to come out and make them angry. Anyway Tunisia I watch last night is no match to Super eagles
