Condemned to win against Côte d'Ivoire to continue its journey in the competition, Algeria sank in Douala.



Algeria will not achieve the double.

Titled in 2019, the African champions were left without glory after a final rout against Côte d'Ivoire, on the occasion of the last meeting of Group E (1-4).

Forced to win to continue their journey in the competition, the Fennecs sank against the Elephants, who were already leading by two units at rest, after goals from Franck Kessié (22nd) and Ibrahim Sangaré (39th).

Mass was said less than ten minutes after the break, when Gunner Nicolas Pépé scored the third goal in his characteristic style (54th).

The Elephants, trained by Frenchman Patrice Beaumelle, finished first in their group with this second victory.

Unhappy throughout the competition, the partners of Riyad Mahrez, who as a symbol missed a penalty (60th), finished last in their group, even if Sofiane Bendebka prevented the selection of Djamel Belmadi from leaving the competition without scoring the slightest goal (74th).
