before the match: Tunisa already qualified. Algeria, Uganda,
and Liberia fighting for the second spot of this group. Liberia played
at the same time at home against Tunisia.
If Uganda wins: Uganda through.
If Algeria and Uganda draw: Uganda through if Liberia does not win, otherwise Liberia qualified.
If Algeria wins: Algeria is qualified unless Liberia does not win by a two goals higher margin (for example Algeria 1:0, Liberia 3:0).
Decisive against Uganda
was the absence of physical presence and competence in defendce. A good
example were the goals. In the first case two players could not keep the
Algerian striker from scoring, in the second case it was clearly the physical
superiority of the Algerian striker that enabled him the precise header
although the ball had been long in air.
Anyway Algeria looked
stronger and quite inspired, but again with some difficulties converting
their superior passages into goals.
