Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire Draw One-All in AFCON Match

  • Ntungamili Nkomo

Soccer action continuing at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Equatorial Guinea Tuesday with all four Group D matches walking away with a point each.

Guinea drew one-all with 1992 champions Cote d’Ivoire while Mali and Cameroon settled for the same result.

While the two games were fairly exciting, it is Monday’s Group C matches that had soccer fans still talking.

True to form, the so-called Group of death was loaded with drama. A rewind.

Despite their early lead, South Africa's Bafana Bafana went on to lose 1-3 to Algeria after conceding an own goal and failing to convert a penalty.

Algeria’s comeback wasn’t surprising given their top ranking as Africa’s finest soccer outfit.

But what was astonishing was the way South Africa let their opponents off the hook and made life easy for them.

On the other hand Senegal beat Ghana 2-1.

Sports analyst Muziwethu Hadebe told VOA despite their humiliation, Bafana Bafana remain a force to be reckoned with, adding the race remained fluid.
