    It's an interesting stylistic contrast this. Algeria very technical, move the ball fairly well and play through quick combinations. Ivory Coast are all about individual talent making something happen individually. Neither team defends well either.

    Well, it's the first goal Algeria conceded, i think they are defending pretty well. The loss of their left back Attal hurt them though, they're clearly weaker without him.

    Agree about the rest.

    This Ounas is very quick and looks very good on the ball.

    That's a definite penalty! How did they miss that?!

    Agree with ref here honestly. There's contact but not nearly enough to be a foul

    There's contact, he didn't try to play the ball and it was rash.

    So, it's gonna be extra time, Nigeria is the winner from this game.

    Played a day before and the two teams here are gonna play 30 more minutes.

    Why the hell didn't Nigeria play today and Tunisia - Madagascar yesterday... It weird and unfair for some teams.

    Mh, disagree, he's runninh through, there's little contact but nothing serious, Ounas throws himself to the ground because he's lost the ball

    Ivory Coast keeper is good. Algeria really should win this though, clearly a level above

    It looks like Ivory coast is gonna hit them on the counter, this algerian team is missing way too many chances.

    Bar 1 or 2 decisions, the referees in this game have been very good.

    Coach of Ivory Coast must be an incredibly daft human being to make 4 substitutes and still not bring on Pepe.

    He put bony on before Pepe. With the season the latter had, it's a weird decision.

    Ivory coast is definitly playing for the penalties. Been defending for the whole extra time. They're not even trying.

    Been putting some comments since the start of the game. It should be like 1-3/4 to Algeria. Missed a penalty, missed a lot of Chance. Got denied a penalty in the first half.

    Go one page back and you'll have a few comments about the game.

    5 minutes before penalties now.

    Big big freekick now for Algeria, the last minutes of extra time. At the entrance of the penalty area.

    I was surprised the game extended that much since I know Algeria are a far better team, but now won't be a surprise if Ivory Coast snatched it on pens.

    It's been that way yeah. Ivory Coast actually the more dangerous of the two in extra time, Algeria completely knackered. Serey Die is Ivorian Gattuso :drool:

    Haha, the Algerian manager just got a player specifically for this freekick!

    And it almost worked o_O. That was extremely close.

    I remembet rating Serey Did highly at one point some years ago. Though I don't even know where he's playing now. :D

    Really? They didn't have a single chance in extra time, they were defending from the first minute. Algeria had 3 or 4, two clear cut chances.

    Well now. Penalties. Algeria the more tired of the two and also the ones with more to lose so to speak since they missed a penalty already and know they're the better team and really should have won...

    They had the big goal line fracas off a corner in the first and the almost own goal in the second. Algeria only the one chance with Slimani

    I fancy the ivory coast keeper. He was very good this game and he must have a lot of confidence.

    Had more to do with him running himself into the ground and sprinting towards the end of extra time. He's the captain too, he's been lifting everyone else mentally with his energy and heart. Reminded me of Gattuso in the CL final in 2003 and the WC final in 2006

    Well, Slimani actually had two chances.
    There's the freekick as well at the end.

    The own goal was more of a miss from the Algerian defender rather than a 'good' chance for ivory coast.

    Anyway, let's see who nicks this one.
