In the Africa Cup of Nations held in Cameroon, the Ivory Coast’s manager, Patrice Beaumelle reacted to his team’s performance against Sierra Leone in Group E.

“Honestly I can’t explain that goal. You could have Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola in charge and they wouldn’t be able to prepare for that,” said Ivory Coast coach Patrice Beaumelle, whose side must still face Algeria.

“I thought our performance was absolutely fine and we even played some really attractive stuff at times, but maybe this stadium doesn’t agree with us.”

Alhaji Kamara was able to net the equalising goal after Ivory Coast shot-stopper lost the ball in the dying seconds of the match

Serge Aurier had to jump in goal for Ivory Coast as they lost the lead to draw 2-2 with Sierra Leone in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations game.

Goalkeeper Badra Ali Sangare made a huge error in stoppage time of the second half to allow Sierra Leone’s Alhaji Kamara to net an equaliser.

Ali Sangare sustained an injury in the process and had to be taken off, with Aurier stepping up to take his place and see out the final minutes of the game.

What happened?

Ivory Coast were 2-1 up in the Afcon clash with just seconds left when the ball was headed back to Ali Sangare.

The shot-stopper ran out to catch it to prevent it from going out for a corner, but it slipped out of his hands as he landed and Steven Caulker was there to take possession.

Caulker squared to Kamara who was able to tap into the empty net to secure a point for his side.
