Mauritania players celebrate the historic victory over Algeria and advancement to the second round of the African Nations

Algeria was eliminated from the 2023 African Cup of Nations, after defeating Mauritania for the first time ever in an African tournament, 0-1. Mauritania advanced to the round of 16 in the tournament, at the end of the fourth group matches.

Mauritanian centre-back Mohamed Delahi Yali scored the winning goal at the end of the first half, in a huge and shocking surprise for the Desert Warriors, two-time African champions, who were unable to adjust the score and achieve a draw throughout the second half, at the Al Salam Stadium in Bouaké, Ivory Coast.

Algeria, the champion of the 2019 edition, came in last place in its group, exiting the group stage for the second edition in a row, while Mauritania will certainly rise as one of the best teams in third place, while Angola topped the group and Burkina Faso came in second place.
