AFCON

GUN 1:0 ALG: Why Algeria's Back Clash In The AFCON Should Serve A Lesson To Other Top Nations

Champions of the African Cup Of Nations for the second year in a row Algeria has failed to win either of their past two tournament matches, which is highly concerning and disheartening for a country with such high expectations. The Algerian National Team was defeated 1-0 by Equatorial Guinea in today's match, leaving them in last place in Group E with just one point.

Following their poor run of results at the AFCON this year, the Desert Warriors may not be able to advance to the next stage of the tournament. Algeria's rise and fall in the African Cup of Nations might serve as a cautionary tale for other top teams vying for the prestigious trophy this year.


Algeria was considered a strong favorite to win the trophy going into the tournament due to their high-quality players. As the competition progressed, teams like Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea became a pain in Algeria's flesh, as they were unable to defeat the Desert Warriors.


This should serve as a reminder to the other top African nations competing in the tournament that no country is weak and should not be disregarded due to a lack of well-known quality players. Every match in the competition should be viewed as a final, and every country should be viewed as a worthy adversary, therefore there is no place for underestimating teams.
