Head to head time – Angola 0-0 Algeria

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 With much at stake defences remained tough
Coach Sadaane felt his side did enough
Adequate for Algeria and hosts Angola
Anxious goalless draw in luminous Luanda

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Games best effort with Ger Bougherra
Feeble attempt commonly trial and error
Ze Kalanga freekick tipped over the bar
With Mali out both lit the cigar

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Second and third finishing level on four
Malawi on three failed to reach the shore
Algeria and Mali’s head-to-head used
Rule change leaving most of Africa confused

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Palancas Negras top, Foxes runners up
Living another day in the Nations Cup

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
