Ivory Coast and Algeria draw at AFCON 2013
Posted: 30 January 2013 Time: 21:44
Ivory Coast fought back from two goals down to draw with Algeria in a game that had very little but pride riding on it.
With the Elephants already through as group winners and the Desert Foxes already eliminated, all that was left to conclude was the group and, to be fair, both teams did it with a bit of style – though the goals only started coming towards the end of the match.
Having missed a penalty in the first half through Ryad Boudebouz, Algeria netted their first in the 64th minute through substitute Sofiane Feghouli.
Six minutes later and they made it 2-0 – Feghouli again involved as he provided the cross for Hilal Soudani to powerfully head home.
However, the Ivorians were not prepared to roll over and pulled one back via Didier Drogba’s header 13 minutes from time, and three minutes later Wilfried Bony’s deflected shot brought the scores level.
