• Advantage Algeria, Senegal in group of death


    MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea: Algeria and Senegal secured come-from-behind victories on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) as the Africa Cup of Nations group of death sprang to life with seven goals in a Mongomo double-header. Title favorites Algeria trailed South Africa and could have been even further behind before an own-goal set up a 3-1 Group C triumph. Slow-starting Senegal also trailed only to snatch a 2-1 win over Ghana via a Moussa Sow goal three minutes into stoppage time. The results left Algeria top of the table on goal difference and, if they defeat Ghana on Friday and Senegal conquer South Africa, the battle for last-eight places will be over.
