Afcon 2017: Algeria Blame Loss on Individual Mistakes

Algeria's Amir Bensebaini contests for possession with Youssef Msakni (Tunisia)

Algeria’s chances of making to the knockout stages in the ongoing Africa cup of nations condensed following a 2-1 loss to Tunisia on Thursday night.

Amir Bensebaini directed Youssef Msakni’s 50th minute cross into his own net. Minutes later, viagra Naim Sliti added the second from the spot. Left back Ghoulam had felled Khazri in the box.

“We started well and were very motivated, but along the line, we were undone by two individual mistakes,” coach George Leekens said.

“Both goals were avoidable and we were also not efficient in front of goal. We know how to play, but there were a lot of costly individual errors.”

The Fennecs must beat table leaders, Senegal, who are on top form, by a good margin and pray Zimbabwe and Tunisia result goes in their favor.

“Collectively, we played well but the problem was the transition from defence to attack, and the problem of balance as well. Sometimes, you also need a bit of luck in matches, and today we were unlucky.”
