Winless Algeria Eliminated From AFCON

Algeria have been knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations in the group stages after failing record a single win.

The Desert Warriors drew 2-2 at Group B winners Senegal in a game where only a win would stop them being eliminated the tournament.

Leicester’s Islam Slimani scored both their goals with Senegal equalising twice, Espanyol’s Papakouly Diop and then Fenerbahçe’s Moussa Sow scoring from efforts from the edge of the area.

Algeria were seen as strong favourites to lift the trophy with stars such as Riyad Mahrez but after three disappointing performances they leave Gabon with embarrassed and empty handed.

Senegal advance to play Cameroon in the quarter-finals.
