Africa Cup of Nations 2019

Recommended Posts

A decent game and probably fair outcome.  Certainly Uganda started better but Zambia after going behind probably the better side and deserved to get a point at least.

There was some poor misses and and so ultimately a draw it is.

Can only assume DR Congo are about to lie down for Egypt. Masuaku, Mbemba, M'Poku, Mulumbu, Assombalonga & Bolasie all on the bench in a must win game....

Only in the middle.

Ref in Egypt game is awful. Bottled a couple of big decisions by handing out yellow cards instead of red to Egyptian players.

Looking forward to Senegal very Algeria as I think this should be a decent game, a win for either side should pretty much see them through I think so a good incentive to win this game.

I guess I should not be surprised at the goalless halftime score so far in a game which had not had that many chances.

Hopefully things improve second half as it had been disappointing so far.

The referee is having a shocker. Has bottled a clear second yellow and a stonewall penalty in the last 5 minutes.

Totally agree with that and not saying that there has been one or to poorer ref performances in other games as well.

I would probably say that the refereeing standards have been a lot more lenient than in Europe and as a result some teams will be trying to push their luck when it comes to challenges and fouls made.

A good win for Algeria but not the best game though.

 

I'm struggling to watch it tbh. Probably the poorest international tournament out the lot.

Kenya v Tanzania had been a decent watch first half with Tanzania leading 2-1.

Hope the second half is as decent and doesn't fade into a dour affair.

That was an enjoyable game with Kenya twice coming from behind to win 3-2.

Have to feel sorry for Tanzania but Kenya have to be given credit as well.

Has that reflects just double cautioned one of the Mali players but not shown a red card, having missed a lot of the game and just turning it on now listening to the commentators it sounded like it.

A horrible deflection of the wall for the equaliser from  that free kick for the equaliser.
