Into the quarter finals. Alioui scores a screamer against defending champions Côte d’Ivoire.
I have a feeling we’re gonna end the long drought this year.
Defending champion Ivory Coast are gone.
YEES, Ghana or Egypt in the next round.
0-0 at HT. So nervous. Many key players injured but this is the best we have played as a team since 2004 during Zaki’s first stint as manager.
1-0 Egypt. For a country with such a rich AFCON history they have a lot of unknown players past and present. To me at least.
We had enough chances to score a goal and then in the end the Egyptians took over late in the game
Hope Elneny is fit for the final. We need another winner in the Arsenal squad.
You defiantly deserved that game, we were lucky enough to get away with a late winner. Good luck in the WC qualifiers.
Elneny just scored a very good goal in the final against Cameron. He hit the roof of the net from a funny angle.
Good luck to Egypt today. Nice goal.
This will be heartbreaking for Egypt.
Youth very much beating experience in this one
Egypt side is very youthful as well, only 4 of them played African Cup before. I think average age was 25, in spite of their 44 years old goalie.
I wonder if Joël Matip has any regrets about missing AFCON to help Liverpool get 1 point in a month…
He played well in general terms. I enjoyed the game.
Hopefully he comes back with more confidence and a better level.
