2019 Africa Cup of Nations champions, Algeria now faces a possible elimination from the group stages in the ongoing competition after losing their second Group E game.

Esteban Obiang slid in at the far post to convert a flick-on and net the only goal with 20 minutes left in Douala.

Algeria, who had two goals disallowed must now win their final group game which is against two-time champions Ivory Coast in the final group game in the 33rd edition of the Cup of Nations.
