    ADE MABAO AIFUNGIA TOGO IKIICHAPA ALGERIA AFCON USIKU WA JANA


    Emmanuel Adebayor scored in the first half to help Togo beat Algeria and retain a chance of reaching the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday.
    Adebayor netted in the 32nd minute and substitute midfielder Dove Wome added another in stoppage time to seal the victory, which eliminated Algeria and secured Ivory Coast a berth in the quarterfinals. The Elephants beat Tunisia 3-0 in the early Group D match.
    The match at Royal Bafokeng Stadium had to be stopped for 15 minutes after the 86th because the goalpost tilted backward after an Algeria player ran into the back of the net. Nearly 10 people worked to try to fix it and eventually the woodwork had to be removed and reinstalled.

    'It was one of the hardest games we played so far, we faced a very good Algeria team,' Togo coach Didier Six said.
    'We had the ambition to win and we deserved the victory.'
    Adebayor struck on the break, sending a low right-footed shot past the goalkeeper.
    Wome scored after the stoppage to fix the net, receiving a long pass from midfield and entering the area before firing a shot underneath the charging Algerian goalkeeper.

    'I'm extremely happy,' Adebayor said. 'We knew that we needed to win this game to be able to advance and we dominated from the start.'
    Adebayor had been the best player for Togo in the opener and again proved important on Saturday.
    The Tottenham striker threatened not to play at the tournament because of security concerns and disagreements with Togo's federation over bonus payments for players, but eventually decided to join his teammates.
    'We have had some hard times and Togolese football still has some issues to resolve. Somebody had to take the lead and I did that as the captain,' Adebayor said.
    'Now things are back to normal and I hope that it will continue like this. It shows that if everybody is united we can be successful.'
    Potential: Togo can still secure qualification from their group
