The match was locked at 1-1 after extra-time. Sofiane Feghouli placed Algeria ahead in the 20th minute, before Jonathan Kodija equalised in the 62nd minute.
Baghdad Bounedjah missed a penalty during regulation time at the beginning of the second-half for Algeria, so he will be relieved this mistake didn't cost his nation victory.
We take a look at how the continent reacted to Algeria progressing to the last four right here. As one Tweet expressed, Algerians were so excited Twitter itself broke, but nothing could stop Africa hanging on for social media to get back online and then Tweet their feelings on the game.
Let me declare upfront, I’m supporting @MezahiMaher and #LesVerts in this game. He’s been behind #BafanaBafana in the last two matches. We need to see 🔥 on Sunday at Cairo stadium. #AFCON2019 pic.twitter.com/Fzb3Npabpw— Velile Mnyandu 🇿🇦 (@Veli_Mbuli) July 11, 2019

Brooo Algeria winning that game broke twitter— Zidane (@ZineddineDaif2) July 11, 2019
What a game. The best showing at the tournament so far. Algeria deservedly go through. Best team in the tournament by some distance. Cote D'Ivoire's best game in the tournament. But Algeria's far too strong right now. Should go all the way. #AFCON2019— C.C (@TheBarcaCrypts) July 11, 2019
