Algeria plays Zimbabwe in AFCON 2017 Gabon, Tunisia plays Senegal
AFP – Virtually all the pre-2017 Africa Cup of Nations talk about Group B has concerned which two countries from Algeria, Senegal and Tunisia will advance to the quarter-finals.
Zimbabwe, who complete the quartet based in southeastern Gabonese city Franceville, have been dismissed as no-hopers in a section featuring three of the top five ranked African teams.
The Senegalese headed the monthly FIFA listings released this week with the Tunisians fourth, the Algerians fifth, and the Zimbabweans a distant 30th.
Recently appointed Algeria coach Georges Leekens has warned, however, that his ‘Desert Foxes’ dare not underestimate the ‘Warriors’, the lone qualifiers from southern Africa.
Algeria confront Zimbabwe Sunday in the first half of a double-header at the 20,000-seat Stade de Franceville, followed by Senegal against Tunisia.
