The Lions of Teranga didn’t really have a terrible 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, having won, drawn and lost one of their group matches, but to exit in the first round leaves a sour taste in their mouths.
Having beaten the Black Stars of Ghana in their opening match, they played to a 1-1 draw against South Africa and a loss to Algeria was not enough to stay in the continental showpiece.
Coach Alain Giresse’s side tried all they could as a team touted to progress, as they needed only a point against Algeria to go through to the next round, however, the Desert Foxes were too strong for them in the final match.
Influential campaigners such as Mame Biram Diouf and Cheikhou Kouyate led the side until the final group match, where it was finally decided that their journey came to an end.
Although Giresse has hinted at his future with the side, they might have to build up once again for 2017 with a new manager.
