Adebayor, Wome sink Algeria

Togo beat Algeria 2-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations match on Saturday night

Posted: 26 January 2013 Time: 10:20 pm

Emmanuel Adebayor and Dove Wome scored to give Togo a 2-0 win against Algeria in an Africa Cup of Nations match at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Saturday night.

Algeria created a lot of chances in the first twenty minutes but Togo goalkeeper Kossi Agassa rose to the challenge.

Players like Feghouli, Lacen and Slimani were all involved in goal scoring opportunities for Algeria.

Adebayor scored for Togo in the 31st minute after latching onto a through ball to beat Rais M’Bolhi.

Togo managed to survive several Algerian attacks until the end of the first half.

The Algerians continued to put pressure on their West African opponents in the second half but keeper Agassa managed to keep them at bay.

The match had to be halted for a while in the final minutes after the referee spotted a fault with the goal post. It took more than five minutes for the re-fixing to pave way for the final minutes of the encounter.

Wome, who was the target of a counter attack, made no mistake as he planted the ball beyond the reach of Rais M’Bolhi to make it 2-0 in the 94th minute.

The defeat leaves Algeria with no point after two matches following a 1-0 loss against Tunisia in their first match and they now become the first team to leave the tournament with a game still to play.

If it's a challenge tournament then the rest of Africa is definitely winning. The last 5 tournaments were won by Zambia, Egypt (3 times) and Tunisia. Going further back Cameroon (2 times), Egypt then South Africa. West Africa has been losing.

Is anyone bold enough to predict who will win the cup yet? I'm predicting Ivory Coast will finally live up to expectations this time and go all the way.

nice one Togo,,, i just don't know where eagles went wrong... we have been rebuilding since the 2002, till now all we have is NOTHING, absolute garbage.. a team without coordination, no mid-field,, playing long balls from post to attack as if the mid field is for decoration.. it's only when Super eagles play we hear there are no more minors in africa, (Bf beat Ethopia 4:0 with 10 men, Togo beat Algeria 2:0, Ivory Coast gave Tunisia 3:0)

@Lima. I think one of the problems is our Nigerian coaches are just not honest enough to say coaching super eagles is beyond me. Or if they want to become coaches, they don't take their time to get the highest level of training. What stops them from getting UEFA pro licence or even UEFA licence A before rushing or politicking to attempt to coach super eagles.
And the people at NFF that would just employ anyone because of sentiments with no attention to professionalism are to blame also.
I wish super eagles what they have worked and planned for themselves.

Just like Ethopia I thought Algeria played well but they were only let down by their final ball. They reminded me Bafana Bafana under Pitso [enjoyed passing the ball around more than scoring goals]

@Hlabarinto I agree with you, the past two games Algeris totally dominated their games but when it's time to capitalise on their good work they just waste all their good work. They started against Bafana in that friendly game before Afcon started they were supposed to score 2 or 3 goals but they kept on balooning their effort.

@naija bros i agree with you ivory cost might jst snatch it coz ghana,nigeria are not looking very good while sa will be undone by their lack of experience @this level coz most of our players are locally based and i dont think one can compare the players in europe with more pressure to deliver to those in the more relaxed atmosphere locally...but lets wait and see

The above are the most mature-spirited comments on a particular article I have ever read. Anyway, as a result of my resolve to keep up vigorous campaign against not just negative comments, but comments with the singular intent to vex others spirit, comments completely enveloped with curses and curses alone; I will keep posting the below suggestion for the world to see. JUST MAYBE THERE WILL BE A CHANGE.

A LETTER TO KICK OFF BOARD
Thank you for creating and providing an exclusive site for the pleasure of football fans world over. Kickoff has a unique blog for the posting of individual’s opinions and suggestions pertaining to football. So far, its existence has brought so much information and education about local and international footfall. I have personally learnt a lot from various posts on this forum. I am convinced without reasonable doubt on the genuine intention of so many who desire to be part of kickoff contributors.
While contrary contributions are always welcomed irrespective of the tune or emotion displayed while writing, the abuse of freedom of expression which culminates into curses clearly brings dirty and unhealthy spirit into this wonderful forum.
My humble suggestions towards consolidating this forum for healthy use by matured users are as follows:
1. Devise a means to identify and scrape members who have sufficiently displayed immaturity through the use of offensive and abusive written words (since kickoff may not be able to ascertain given ages while registering potential members).
2. Any scrapped user i.d. should never be readmitted into this forum. A team of your staff, say two or three might take up this as an extra responsibility. Also, certain software can be utilized for this purpose.
3. Delete posts displaying irresponsibility i.e. cursing, or using the “F and S” words which your organization would not be proud to promote to kids; whom you cannot prevent from reading various members comment.
For further details on the possibility of the above, please channel your comprehensive research through www.weddingwire.com. They have a way of deleting abusive and fictitious reviews from their blog less than 6 hours from the time it posts.
If member’s confrontational post that is only intentioned to vex and create imaginary conflicts can be checked or controlled through deleting of same, such members would channel their negative energy elsewhere: thus giving better opportunity for more constructive, creative criticisms and or communication. This has become imperative comparing the diminishing trend of vital contributions to the scary, yet rising trend of irresponsible contributors. If the fundamental of sports is to entertain, educate, benefit and unite, then this forum as a means of spotting activity can be restructured to avail it's members same gains.
