The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations return to action Sunday evening with three-time
champions Nigeria squaring it out with Algeria in the semifinal match at the
Cairo International Stadium in Egypt.
In the other semifinal match, Tunisia will be seeking to repeat the heroics of 2004 when
they lifted the African cup of nations trophy but will have to battle past Senegal’s Lions of
Teranga to book a date at the finals.
Only Nigeria has won the tournament more than once.
Senegal striker Sadio Mane is the joint top scorer in the tournament, with three goals
alongside Algeria’s Adam Ounas, Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo, and DR Congo striker Cedric
Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez, and Galatasaray’s ex-West Ham winger Sofiane
Feghouli are also featured in the squad for Algeria.
