The group phase of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is fast drawing to a close and on Thursday it’s the turn of Groups E and F to wrap up their fixtures.

Ivory Coast take on Algeria in the day’s biggest match-up, with four games in total on show.

Algeria are the reigning champions of the AFCON but are in massive danger of a shock exit at this stage; they are bottom of Group E and must win for a chance at going through.

In the other group, it’s something of a winner-takes-all situation between Gambia and Tunisia, though all four nations still have hopes of progression depending on results elsewhere.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the day’s big clash and the rest of the fixtures on Thursday.

Ivory Coast vs Algeria kicks off at 4pm GMT on Thursday, 20 January 2022.
