Dominant Algeria Crush Guinea 3-0, To Face Madagascar In AFCON Quarter Finals

Desert Foxes of Algeria capped a dominant performance with an emphatic 3-0 whitewashing of Syli National of Guinea in a Round of 16 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.

The relatively ‘easy’ win now sets the North African side against Madagascar in one of the quarter-finals fixtures of the Nations Cup.

Algeria knew what they wanted and set out for it right from the off and just midway into the game, they had their breakthrough. You’ve Belaili was the man who set the Foxes on the victory path with his 24th-minute opening goal.

With their traditional sleek, crisp passing game, Algeria allowed the ball to do the running as they waited for their West African foes make mistakes.

Manchester City of England winger, Mahrez, doubled Algeria’s lead 12 minutes into the second period and from then, it became clear Syli Nationale was standing on the exit door of the tournament.

Winners in 1990, Algeria, put the game to bed with eight minutes remaining on the clock when Ounas fired in the third goal for North Africans.

Algeria will now meet Madagascar on Thursday in one of the quarterfinals games. Madagascar edged DR Congo 4-2 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 draw at full and extra time.

    Before the number of participating teams was expanded, the boys were separated from the men at the group stages. Now we have to wait till the quater finals for that to happen.

  • Bomboy 5 years ago

    In my opinion, Algeria is now the top favourite to win this AFCON. But, as you know, opinions and speculations are not always fulfilled 100%.

    This AFCON has been full of surprises. Anything can happen.

  • Complete sport Nigeria I’m absolutely disappointed in you guys, this is almost 12 hours you posted this story. People have pointed out your error and you have not rectify it, SHAME. For your information, Algeria will be meeting winner of the match between Mali and ivory coast. Thanks

    No need for further argument the answer is in here. At least i believe CAF as hosts of the competition will be more authoritative than Complete sports
