Mauritania shocks Algeria with historic victory at TotalEnergies CAF AFCON

In a stunning upset at the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023, Mauritania achieved a historic victory by defeating Algeria at the Stade de la Paix in Bouake.

Despite the odds favoring Algeria, Mauritania emerged victorious, securing their first-ever win in the prestigious tournament.

Yali Dellahi played a pivotal role in Mauritania’s triumph, controlling a rebound and delivering a remarkable strike that found the back of the net, giving his team the lead in the 37th minute.

Following the early breakthrough, Amir Abdou strategically managed the game, and goalkeeper Babacar Niasse made heroic saves to preserve the lead.

The historic win against Algeria not only marks Mauritania’s first-ever victory in the TotalEnergies CAF AFCON but also propels them to the knockout stage of the tournament.

With three points secured, Mauritania has defied expectations and made a significant impact in the competition.
