Africa Cup of Nations 2019: Semi-final results

"We played against Ivory Coast, but we have tried to recover in time for our semifinal game against Nigeria, "Belmadi told a news conference in Cairo on Saturday".

Following an early exit in Gabon in 2017 and a awful World Cup qualifying campaign, Belmadi has revived Algerian fortunes as they bid to end a 29-year wait for a second continental crown.

Rohr added "Belmadi has done a very professional job".

Tunisia will feel aggrieved after referee Bamlak Tessema changed a decision to award them another penalty after consulting the Video Assistant Referee with seven minutes left of extra time. "It will be great to do that, but we have to beat Nigeria first and then win the final." he concluded.

"Algeria are a balanced team defensively and offensively". The final score allowed the Desert Foxes to go through to the semis. Three of their AFCON semis have gone to penalties (winning once in 1980 and losing in 1984 and 1988). It was against Mali in 2013 (a 4-1 win).

"We scored an own goal, unlucky, but we have come back every time in this tournament and this time we came back on a penalty".

- Nigeria midfielders Peter Etebo (46) and Wilfred Ndidi (41) have won possession more times than any other outfield players at the AFCON.
