The group stage ended on Thursday with the surprise elimination of defending champions Algeria. We now know the program of the

After twelve days of competition, the chickens of this CAN 2022 have given their verdict.

We now know the list of sixteen qualified teams.

Main information: the Algerian title holder was ejected Thursday by Côte d'Ivoire, a curse after a similar scenario in 1992.

Place now in the round of 16, from Sunday, with two beautiful duels on the program.

We summarize everything for you in this new issue of the CAN newspaper, our daily meeting until the final on February 6.

Thursday's matches

Group E. Ivory Coast-Algeria (3-1)


The first big shock of this CAN turned into a rout for the reigning African champions.

Ordered to win to qualify, the Fennecs sank after Kessié opened the score in the 22nd minute of play, a few seconds after Bennacer hit the post.

Trailing three zeros on the hour mark, they woke up somewhat but without really believing in the miracle, especially since Mahrez sent a penalty on the post.

A bit like the France team in 2002, eliminated from the World Cup four years after their world title, the Algerian people witnessed a collective shipwreck.

“It's a total failure, the feeling of defeat is bitter, even detestable…”, regretted the coach.

Ivory Coast, meanwhile, impressed in Douala and gained confidence ahead of facing Egypt in the round of 16.

Group E. Sierra Leone-Equatorial Guinea (0-1)


Equatorial Guinea will also see the round of 16.

A Ticket scratched thanks to his victory over a goal by Pablo Ganet which still bears the signature of the brilliant Iban Salvador, his leader, decisive passer.

The Nzalang Nacional managed to reach the last four in 2015.

Group F. Gambia-Tunisia (0-0)


The Carthage Eagles were guaranteed to qualify even before this match as the best third.

Well took them.

Deprived of twelve players contaminated with Covid-19, including the star of the team Wahib Khazri, they lost in the last seconds of the meeting.

A defeat conceded on a cannonball from Lamin Jallow.

Tunisia finished best third.

Despite all her absences, she may regret a new penalty missed by the Tunisians.

The third failure in three games in this exercise for the formation of Mondher Kebaier.

She will find in the round of 16 Nigeria, one of the most impressive teams of this start of CAN.

Group F. Mali-Mauritania (2-0)


The Malians finish at the top of this group.

A place reinforced by their victory full of control against Mauritania.

Lensois Massadio Haïdara quickly sheltered his team (2nd) before Ibrahim Koné doubled the bet on penalty (49th).

The Mauritanians, trained for two months by Didier Gomes Da Rosa to replace Corentin Martins, are the only ones to finish the tournament without a single point.


🎉 Mali ends in style, beating Mauritania 2-0!

👊 Haidara and Kone scored!

The dream of the day

This is the one in which lives the selection of the Comoros.

Winner of her third match against the Ghanaian Black Stars on Tuesday night, she pocketed the last of four best third place tickets thanks to Thursday's results.

An incredible adventure for the 132nd nation in the world which is participating in its first CAN and which started the competition with two defeats.

The Cœlacanthes will rub shoulders with a sacred client on Wednesday evening: Cameroon, host country and contender for the title.

Head-to-head of the day

What if the Elephants match had changed on this stroke of blood from its captain?

We were in the first quarter of an hour and no one had yet scored when Serge Aurier deemed it correct to stand up in the first sense of the term to the South African referee of the match Victor Gomes.

The former Parisian will receive a yellow card.

Something to be happy about.


⚡ The situation almost got out of hand between Serge Aurier and the referee!

👊 The two men were head to head!
