William Troost-Ekong’s own goal gave the Desert Foxes the lead, before Odion Ighalo levelled in the second half. However, with the last kick of the match, Riyad Mahrez smashed in a free-kick past Daniel Akpeyi. Defeat to Algeria means Nigeria have been eliminated in five of their last six semi-finals at AFCON, after qualifying in six of their previous seven. “We are very disappointed because I think we didn’t deserve it [to lose to Algeria]. “We all know how disappointing this defeat is but we are professionals and we’ll try and get this past us and fight back,” Simon told the media.
