AFCON 2017 Group B: Zimbabwe hold Algeria; Senegal beats Tunisia

Senegal began their Africa Cup of Nations campaign with victory over Tunisia in Group B.

Tunisia almost took the lead in the opening two minutes, but Ahmed Akaichi’s header skimmed the post and he smashed a shot narrowly wide.

In between, Senegal took the lead through Sadio Mane’s penalty after Cheikhou Kouyate had been hacked down.

Kara Mbodj powerfully headed in a second, and almost scored an own goal when his clearance struck the post.

Tunisia were guilty of missing plenty of chances, in particular Youssef Msakni, who headed wide from two yards out and shot straight at Abdoulaye Diallo in the second half.

Victory for Aliou Cisse’s side means they top their group after Algeria’s surprising 2-2 draw against Zimbabwe

Riyad Mahrez scored twice as Algeria left it late to earn a 2-2 draw with Zimbabwe at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Leicester winger put his side ahead with a curling shot in off the post.

But Kudakwashe Mahachi’s low shot into the corner and a Nyasha Mushekwi penalty made it 2-1 to Zimbabwe – a lead they held until the 82nd minute.

    NO MORE COVERAGE OF AFCON? ZAMFOOT MUST BE PROFESSIONAL ENOUGH TO REPORT ON ALL AFCON GAMES. WHERE ARE THE RESULTS FOR GROUPS C & D?
    Which teams are likely to go b r Yong the group stage. SOME GOOD REPORTING EXPECTED

      The African best are there if you mind I r not. The minnows can just watch or don’t mind.

    • Mulenga says:

      Ghana to semi finals for the sixth consecutive time. That is consistency. Shows pedigree. THEY ARE GOOD WHETHER YOU LIKE THEM OR NOT. They are in a different class.

  6. Mulenga says:

    Very poor reporting on Afcon. ONLY THE FIRST MATCH? What happened after that? Because we are not there, no updates? This is selective journalism and does not bode well for the development of football in our dear country. Shame on Zamfoot.

  7. Mulenga says:

    There was only one match at Afcon? Horrible zamfoot. Egypt just sailed to the finals and are cruising to win again.
