AFCON Predictions | Who will win the Africa Cup of Nations?

For the first time since the Match Day 2 of Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Cameroon 2021 qualifying matches in November last year, African countries got back to action post COVID-19 with various friendly matches played all over the globe.

Algeria 1-0 Nigeria

In a repeat of the 2019 AFCON semi-final, African champions Algeria once again came out top, beating the Super Eagles of Nigeria 1-0 in Austria to stretch their unbeaten run of matches to 19.

Les Fennecs scored the lone goal in the sixth minute through defender Ramy Bensebaini who poked home from close range on the second bite of the cherry after his initial header off a corner was blocked.

Algeria last lost a football match in October 2018 away to Benin and will now hope to extend the run when they face Mexico on Tuesday in the Netherlands.

Mali 3-0 Ghana

In Antalya, Turkey, Mali produced one of the biggest shocks of the African international friendlies’ window, thrashing Ghana’s Black Stars 3-0.

Hamari Traore gave Mohamed Magassouba’s men a brilliant start to the match scoring in the third minute, before El Bilal Toure celebrated his Mali debut with the second goal.

Ghana were put further to the sword when Amadou Haidara netted the third late in the second half.

Mali will next face Iran in their second friendly match on Tuesday.

Morocco 3-1 Senegal

A depleted Senegal side was beaten 3-1 by hosts Morocco in Rabat, with head coach Aliou Cisse being forced to field an almost new side after many players withdrew.

Liverpool forward and 2019 African Footballer of the Year Sadio Mane tested positive for Covid-19, while injuries ruled out goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
