It was a do or die game for Algeria against the Ivory Coast this afternoon at the African Cup of Nations, and Franck Kessie’s side triumphed 3-1 sending Ismael Bennacer’s team home early.
Kessie scored the opening goal for the Ivory Coast and was named Man of the Match, while MilanNews write that Bennacer will soon return to Italy to be available to Stefano Pioli perhaps even for the match on Sunday evening at San Siro between Milan and Juventus because there is no quarantine period to observe.
The build-up 🔥
The goal 🔥
The celebration 🔥
