Algeria dump South Africa out of CHAN

[Posted 18 Feb 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Ammabinneplaas are out of CHAN

Algeria ended South Africa's CHAN team, Ammabinneplaas' fairy run at the Championship of Nations finals, by beating them 2-0 in a quarter-final match played in Khartoum.

The Desert Foxes won the match courtesy of goals from Maiza Adel and Hocine Metref late in each half of the exciting match, in which the South Africans dominated the early exchanges.

Algeria have now qualified for the semi-finals of the CHAN and their opponents will be decided on Saturday in another quarterfinal match pitting Tunisia and DR Congo.

It was the South African who were out of the blocks first, with Already Mkwananzi forcing the Algerian keeper into a fine save as early as the 5th minte, before Leonard Shabangu shot wide moments later.

The Desert Foxes took control of the match towards end of the first half and from there, they dominated the Southern Africans.

From such dominance came a penalty towards end of the first half, which was cooly converted by Metref.

Adel then sealed the win for Algeria late in the 2nd half to send the South African team packing from the competition.

Ammabinneplaas nonetheless will exit the competition with their heads held high. The team which SAFA sent to the CHAN finals can not even be said to be a 3rd string side of the ABSA Premiership.

The team consisted of lower division players, and for them to come to the CHAN finals, beat CHAN giants like Zimbbwe and Ghana in the manner they did, could be proof that if South Africans take African competitions seriously, they could prove the belief in the country that theirs could be one of the best leagues on the continent.
