Africa: Nation Eliminated From CAN

Togo defeated Algeria 2-0 on Saturday (January 26th). The Greens were eliminated from 2013 CAN in South Africa.

"We didn't play great football, but it's hard to blame anyone. I made the choices. I take responsibility for what happened," Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic said after the game.

"Tonight was disastrous. I feel deeply ashamed. It's hard to analyse. Now we'll sit down and think about the future of Algerian football," he added.
