Algeria vs Ivory coast live streaming AFCON 2013 for free. The final day Algeria vs Ivory coast of Group Stage play at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations was supposed to have been loaded with possibilities.
Ivory coast will seek to give playing time to their second eleven during Group D’s final matchday against the Fennecs who no longer hold their initial strength of purpose.
On the other side of the ball, Algeria has yet to score at this tournament and comes into Wednesday’s match without a point from two outings. They lost 1-0 to Tunisia on a Youssef Msakni stunner in the first minute of second-half stoppage time and were beaten 2-0 by Togo on Saturday.
Algeria have been eliminated from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations following their losses to Tunisia and Togo in their first two games, but bowing out in a bright fashion could define new horizons for the Fennec Foxes and their coach Vahid Halilhodzic, who could lose his job if the north Africans, earlier tipped as one of the favourites of this edition, record a complete flop in all three outings.
The Bosnian has been able to rejuvenate the outfit to some extent since his arrival in July 2011, which his bosses have publicly commended. The 2013 Afcon was an occasion to showcase the strength of the promising new outfit, but the project fell short in South Africa and he remains the only one many will blame.
Lineups: Algeria vs Ivory coast
Algeria: Mbolhi Belkalem, Ghoulam, Mesbah, Tedjar Lacen, Kadir, Boudebouz, Aoudi Soudani, Slimani
Ivory coast: Copa K.Toure, I.Traore, Lolo, Boka Y.Konan, Razak, Bony, Romaric L.Traore, A.Kone
Cote d’Ivoire will have few calculations to make as they take on Algeria. Coach Sabri Lamouchi says they are prepared to meet whoever emerges from Group C in the quarter-finals, and thus there is no need to fight to finish on top of Group D or otherwise to avoid one side or the other. They will play their game, fix their faults and focus on the challenges ahead in the tournament.
The Frenchman will likely opt to observe his second eleven against the Fennec Foxes on Wednesday while letting his veterans to refresh ahead of the quarter-finals.
