The best showing at the tournament so far. Algeria deservedly go through. Best team in the tournament by some distance. Cote D’Ivoire’s best game in the tournament. But Algeria’s far too strong right now. Should go all the way. #AFCON2019— C.C (@TheBarcaCrypts) July 11, 2019— Ella Okeys (@e_okeys) July 11, 2019Lets gooooooooo Algeria!
