Very little information is available on the results so far apart from the scores. Algeria certainly outplayed Libya on day one. Without knowing the make up of the team I suspect that a number of France-based players were selected, making it a tough team.

Egypt won well against a travel-lagged Mauritanian side and I feel will struggle against the Algerians.

Prediction: Algeria by 25 points

Playoff 3rd-4th
Mauritania v Libya

Mauritania will have overcome the travel lag it would have experienced in their first game. I suspect they will have too much skill and strength for the Libyans.

Prediction: Mauritania by 20 points.

Teams for all sides not available
