Wilfried Bony shines as Ivory Coast oust Algeria

Ivory Coast won the battle of the African Nations Cup favourites, eliminating Algeria to advance to their fourth semi-final in the last six tournaments following a Wilfried Bony-inspired 3-1 win.

The Manchester City striker scored two fine headers to decide the contest, first meeting a Max Gradel cross in the 26th minute, then powering a Yaya Toure free kick beyond Rais Mbolhi on 68 minutes.

Gervinho added a late third to seal the triumph, which dumps much-fancied Algeria out of the competition and sends Herve Renard’s side through to a semi-final with Democratic Republic of Congo.
