Cameroon, Tunisia, Guinea and Zambia qualified for the semifinals of the men's football tournament at the ninth All Africa Games.

In group B, the host country Algeria let victory slip through its fingers at the last minute during extra-time in the second half of the match after dominating the Zambian team for about 90 minutes.

Having opened the score-board of the match at the 44th minute, the Algerian team failed to prevent the Zambian team, which fell to 10-men after one of its defenders was sent off at the 78th minute, from scoring the equalizing goal at the 94th minute.

With only four points, Algeria handed over its ticket to the semi-finals to Zambia, which increased its tally of points to five following the draw.
The other team to advance from the group was Guinea, which beat Egypt 3-2 to confirm its place in the semifinals.

In group A, Cameroon beat South Africa by 2-1 to book its place in the semifinals with a total of 7 points while Tunisia managed to reach the semifinals of the tournament with 5 points despite drawing its last match 1-1 with Ghana.
