Ivory Coast exit the #AFCON2019 on penalty kicks against Algeria

Algeria reached the African Cup of Nations semi-finals on Thursday evening as they beat Ivory Coast on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra-time.

The two teams produced a brilliant, competitive affair with the Desert Foxes stealing an early march as Sofiane Feghouli scored in the 20th minute. Jonathan Kodjia was the man to reply not long after as he scored a fantastic solo effort mid-way through the second period. Neither side were able to edge ahead throughout the rest of the game. Wilfried Bony and Serey Die were the men to miss in the shootout for the Ivory Coast and ensure Algeria progress to the next round.
