Malawi 3-0 Algeria
Tournament outsiders Malawi produced a shock result with this comprehensive win over World Cup qualifiers Algeria, the Flames’ first-ever African Nations Cup finals victory.
The Desert Foxes never looked likely to recover from going three-nil down shortly after half-time.
Russel Mwafulirwa opened the scoring on 17 minutes from a tight angle after a mistake by Algerian keeper Faouzi Chaouchi.
Elvis Kafoteka powered a header past Chaouchi for goal number two on 24 minutes.
And David Banda took advantage of some comic defending to slide home number three on 50 minutes.
