Togo put themselves back in contention in Group D at Algeria’s expense, after beating the Desert Foxes in an engaging contest in Rustenburg.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor put the Togolese ahead in the first half, coolly slotting under onrushing Algerian goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi.

Substitute Dove Wome doubled their lead in extended injury time, after referee Hamada Namplandraza added 13 minutes.

Algeria had dominated for long periods but were unable to find an equaliser.

The result leaves the North Africans unable to progress and ensures Ivory Coast’s progression, after their earlier 3-0 win over Tunisia.

Togo, meanwhile, go into their final group game with the Elephants in a good position to qualify for the knockout stages for the first time.
