Equatorial Guinea went into this game as underdogs. And even though Algeria was not having a great tournament, failed to score a single goal since their first game. Everyone expected the Algerian team to walk over the Equatorial Guinea team.

As it stands the reigning champions are on their way out of the tournament unless they produce a masterpiece in their final game. They currently sit at the bottom of the group with 1 point while Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea are set to qualify to the next stage of the competition.
The Algerian team may need to win their final game by a higher goal margin in order to qualify to the next stage of the tournament as the 3rd best team from their group.
Congratulations to the Equatorial Guinea team on their victory. We wish the Algerian team all the best in their remaining fixture.
