Two of the more talented teams in Africa face off on Sunday in the Africa Cup of Nations semifinals as Algeria and Nigeria face off, with the winner moving on to face either Senegal and Tunisia in the final on Friday. Nigeria got a 2-1 win over South Africa in the quarterfinals, while Algeria got by Ivory Coast on penalty kicks to make it here:
That was both countries’ first appearance in the final, and it took Algeria another decade to reach their second and be crowned champions for the first time. Nigeria have won seven of the last nine games between these sides, but this one looks like being a highly competitive affair with Algeria the slight favourites to book their place in Friday’s showpiece.
Algeria: A hectic match against Ivory Coast saw this team put just six of its 21 shots on frame. With Riyad Mahrez and Sofiane Feghouli, there is so much speed and creativity, but the production from the strikers has to improve, or their run will end here.
Nigeria: Consistency is the problem with this team. After beating Burundi and Guinea in the group stage, this team goes ahead and loses to Madagascar. Then, they follow it up with a win over a talented Cameroon and edge South Africa. You just don’t know what version of this team you will get. In attack, there aren’t any problems, but in defense they will have to close down better after allowing five goals in the last three games.
