Today’s final 16 knockout round of the African Cup ended the final two matches. The first thing that started was Mali vs. Côte d’Ivoire. Everyone is more optimistic about the African elephant Ivory Coast, but in fact Mali’s strength is not worse than Côte d’Ivoire. In the end, Côte d'Ivoire eliminated Mali with a goal in the 76th minute with a goal scored by the London Zar. Mali had as many as 18 shots in the entire game, 10 more shots than Ivory Coast, but the ability to seize opportunities is still not as experienced as Ivory Coast. The promoted Côte d’Ivoire will face North Africa’s strong Algeria in the quarterfinals. This duel is also a strong dialogue, which must be wonderful.
The second game was Ghana against Tunisia This is also a well-matched matchup. In the 73rd minute of the second half, Tunisia’s Hennessy broke the deadlock. The time point for this goal was very close to that of Côte d’Ivoire, but Tunisia’s luck was not as good as that of Côte d’Ivoire. When it was about to enter the stoppage time, Ghana got a set kick, Tunisian Bedouwe capped the ball in the penalty area and headed the ball into his own goal. Ghana escaped at the last minute and the game entered overtime.
The two sides also in the overtime No achievement, the game dragged into a brutal penalty shootout. In the last minute of overtime, Tunisia made the fourth substitution adjustment and adjusted the position of the goalkeeper. This scene reminds us of the 14th World Cup Before the penalty shootout between the Netherlands and Costa Rica, the Dutch coach Van Gaal also changed the goalkeeper. The Dutch team finally won the penalty shootout. Today, the substitution in Tunisia worked again. The new goalkeeper saved Ghana’s third place. A penalty kick helped Tunisia successfully qualify.
