After twelve days of group stage action and two days of rest, the journey to African Cup of Nations, AFCON, glory resumes today in the land of the pyramids, Egypt.

But with the group stage over, eight out of the 24 teams were eliminated whiles sixteen teams also slugged it out in the round of 16 to secure places in the quarter finals.
Quarter-finals brought the list further down to four semi-finalists. Algeria eliminated Nigeria and Senegal knocked out Tunisia. That sets up the Algeria vs. Senegal final of July 19.
On July 17, Nigeria’s Super Eagles sored above the Tunisian Carthage Eagles to win the third- place playoff in Cairo. The real deal is on July 19 when Algeria makes a case for their second AFCON trophy and as Senegal chases a first.

Algeria have recorded only a draw in six games at the AFCON. The Fennecs are in a race to go unbeaten in the competition but that will mean having to beat Group B neighbours, Senegal. It will mean beating Senegal for a second time having beaten the Teranga Lions on the second day of action by a lone goal.
Algeria, like Egypt and Morocco, ended the group phase without conceding a goal and with maximum nine points – they also beat Kenya and Tanzania by two and three goals respectively.
