After losing to Mauritania, Algeria finished last in its group and was eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations

Winner over Senegal in the 2019 final (1-0), Algeria can no longer do that. Its last round in its group was in 2022, and it finished last again after being defeated by Mauritania (0-1) on Tuesday evening. No success in three matches: There is no need to search further for the reasons for the Foxes’ absence from the round of 16. After drawing with Angola (1-1) and then Burkina Faso (2-2), Algeria lost to Mauritania, which had never won a match in its history in the African Cup of Nations.

It is an amazing new story that has characterized this very surprising continental tournament, with this success achieved by Al-Mourabitoun. In the 37th minute, Delahey scored the only goal of the match after a clash. Mohsen (59), Kamara (82) and especially Ba (85, on the crossbar) wasted a break point without a result. Mauritania, third in its group despite two losses, qualified for the round of 16 for the first time in its history.

Without Mahrez at the start of the match, Djamel Belmadi's men did nothing. Sure enough, Ounas faced Mandria, Guingamp's goalkeeper. He also sent the Lille player to Aouar, who shot wide in the 25th minute. In the 69th minute, the Mauritania goalkeeper blocked a dangerous attempt from Mandy. After its elimination, Algeria falls from a height, but perhaps it will not be the only one: Ivory Coast is on the brink of the abyss, awaiting the results of Namibia and Zambia.
