AFCON 2019: Super Eagles fall 1-2 to Algeria superior firepower

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday crashed out of the 2019 African Cup of Nation (AFCON) after a 1-2 defeat by the Algerian side. The game had entered a four minute added time when Algeria’s Riyad Mahrez converted a superb free-kick to launch the team into the tournament finals.

 Algeria will be facing their group opponents Senegal in the final match on Friday at the same venue while Nigeria will compete for the third place with Tunisia.

Algeria took the lead through a first-half own goal by William Troost-Ekong before Nigeria equalised with an Odion Ighalo penalty awarded after a VAR review.

Mahrez cross in the 40th minute led to William Troost-Ekong putting the ball into his own net, before VAR gave Nigeria a penalty kick which Odion Ighalo scored in the 70th minute.

The game’s first real chance came at the quarter hour mark from a free-kick which Bennacer sent to Rami Bensabaini, but the defender’s header went just wide.

Nigeria began the second half on attacking note trying to find the equaliser, but found a resolute Algerian defence that stopped all their attempts.

Algeria’s Ismail Bennacer could have given the Desert Foxes the lead two minutes into stoppage time but his shot struck the crossbar.

The victory has launched Les Fennecs to the final for the second time in their history and the first since 1990.
