FIFA World Cup Guinea stun Algeria to revive their qualification hopes

Guinea put their FIFA World Cup ambitions back on track in style with a vital 2-1 away win at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Algiers against Algeria.

Mortaye Sylla’s 50th minute goal alongside Aguibou Camara’s 63rd minute strike was enough for the Guineas to stun the former African champions in their own backyard.

Meanwhile Jordan Ayew was the hero of the evening for the Black Stars, as his goal in referee’s additional time saw Ghana produce an impressive come back to haul maximum points away from home against Mali in Bamako.

Kamory Doumbia’s 58th minute strike looked to have given Mali the win but an Ernest Nuamah’s leveller, as well as Ayew’s late winner saw the Black Stars secure a vital win on the road.

Elsewhere, Benin’s held on to an important 1-0 win over Rwanda in a result that blew Group C wide open.

The Result sees Benin tied on points with Rwanda who still occupy first position ahead of the big clash between Nigeria and South Africa on Friday in Uyo.
