The 2021 AFCON is still ongoing with Cameroun being the host and yesterday underdogs, Sierra Leone squared it off with tournament favourite, Algeria.
Algeria who is the defending Champions were expected to get their Group E campaign at the tournament in Cameroon off to an easy start against minnows Sierra Leone, who were returning to the tournament for the first time since 1996.
But the minnows had other plans as they held the defending champions to a surprise goalless draw and just after their game, Chelsea and Germany’s right-back who is a Sierra leone descendant took to his official Facebook page to show his love and support following Sierra Leone’s draw with Algeria.
