Algeria will battle it out with Equatorial Guinea in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) encounter on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 9:00 pm CAT.

This Group E match is set to take place at the Stade Omnisport de Douala in Cameroon’s economic capital, Douala.

Algeria are currently placed second in the group standings and they will be eyeing nothing but a win when they take on Equatorial Guinea.

The defending champions will pin their hopes of defeating the National Thunder on their inspirational captain Riyad Mahrez, who is one of the best African footballers.

The National Thunder are placed at the bottom of group standings and they are now hoping to cause a major upset by defeating a formidable Algeria side.

Emilio Esue is the player to watch out for in the Equatorial Guinea team with the right-back-cum-forward played in the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga.

This will be the first competitive meeting between Algeria and Equatorial Guinea.
