Haven't seen him play other than against us now, but Bafana Bafana have the ability of making some look like superstars.
He's very good in La Liga if that's any consolation.

The game is very even now. Back and forth.

In general Nigeria was the better team, didn't expect it to be this close though.
SA catching up with the big teams of Africa.
Now go on and win it super eagles!

If Nigeria don't win this, then it will be a huge upset.

They're the best team, by a considerable margin.

Not at all. Algeria have been the best performing side. Senegal have the best players on paper. Ivory Coast aren’t too far away.

What’s your beef with them? They weren’t the ones who knocked out Ghana :p
It's ancestral :wenger:

Nah it's all jokes honestly, AFCON is great meme material

Ivory coast aren't taking any chance. They're defending with 11 players at times.

It's paying off, they are nullifying Algerians attack for now and they had the biggest chance to score, barely touched by the Algeria GK towards the post.

Var should have looked at that. It looks like the Algerian team could have had a penalty.

Youcef Attal just got injured on that contact. Big loss of he has to go out.

Edit: Attal is out, big loss for Algeria.

Edit 2: half time, the expert referee in the studio here is saying it should have been penalty and Var should have intervened.

Zaha is losing it. Pushing an Algerian player.

What will the ref give him.

Edit : yellow for Zaha and for Rami.

It's all the ivory coast team the last 5 minutes.

They are struggling to create chances though.

Zaha has been extremely poor so far. That's nowhere near a 100 mil player. Not even close.

Zaha so close to a second yellow there. Not sure he'll finish the game.

Big miss for Algeria again. Mahrez got past the whole defense there.

Ivory coast have the ball since the Algeria goal but it plays right in the Algerians' hands with their counter attack.

Maybe a penalty for Algeria.

The referee is checking with Var.

Edit: Penalty.

Edit 2: Missed, off the post. That gives a life line to ivory coast.

That was the first goal conceded by Algeria this Afcon.

Close to 2-1 for Algeria.

That penalty miss killed the Algerian n° 9. He's not in this game anymore.

Saved on the line from Bakayoko. Crazy save.

That was a sure goal from Mahrez.

Ivory coast hanging in there.

You can just feel that ivory coast are gonna nick a goal on the counter here to win it.

It'd be a shame since they did nothing this game apart from the first half chance and the goal.

These two teams played a day after their opponent in the semi (Nigeria) . If it goes to extra time, Nigeria will have a big advantage.

Nice exchange there between the Algerian 9 and Slimani that's gonna replace him.
