Desert Foxs of Algeria Knockout of AFCON after losing 3:1 to Ivory Coast in Douala


Algeria has been eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations following a 3-1 rout at the hands of the Ivory Coast in Douala, ending the reigning champions’ defense at the first hurdle.

The incumbent holders, who arrived at the delayed Cameroon 2021 edition having claimed their second tournament title at Egypt 2019, were among the heavy favorites to challenge for the top prize once again.

But instead, they will face a humiliating early flight home after Riyad Mahrez and the rest of the Fennec Foxes failed to claim a single win in Group E in underwhelming fashion.
