Angola 0-0 Algeria
Both sides qualified for the quarter-finals after this Luanda bore-draw, with Angola returning there for their quarter-final, after winning Group A.
Both sides knew a draw would probably suffice and players admitted in post-match interviews that they’d settled for one before the end.
Madjid Bougherra had Algeria’s best effort saved on 21 minutes by Carlos Fernandes. Djalma’s right-foot shot on 42 minutes was kicked to safety by Algerian keeper Faouzi Chaouchi.
Algeria and Mali finished on four points, but Algeria qualify through beating Mali 1-0 in their Group game.
