It ain’t over until it’s over! The 2021 Rugby Africa Cup game between Ghana and Algeria played on Wednesday is a testament to that fact.
The Eagles of Ghana displayed an unmatched fighting spirit to upset the Lion Cubs of Algeria who were in control for most parts of the game.
With time not on their side, the Eagles advanced at devastating speed from their own try area for winger Lesley Ansah to finish under the posts and Koffi Appiah kicking through for a 22-20 win.
However, it was Algeria that started the encounter at Kyadondo Rugby Ground in Kampala on the front foot, pinning and keeping Ghana in their half.
It took a quarter an hour for Algeria’s pressure to pay off with Meneghini Maxim exploiting the gap on the outside to dot down. Loree Mathieu extended the lead with a penalty.
