RUSTENBURG, South Africa (AFP) - Africa Cup of Nations favourites Ivory Coast became the first qualifiers for the quarter-finals after Togo beat Algeria 2-0 in Group D on Saturday.

Togo or Tunisia will fill the other place in the last eight from the 'Group of Death' while Algeria are the first country eliminated from the title race after a game delayed when a goalpost was damaged and had to be replaced.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor put Togo ahead on 32 minutes and substitute Dove Wome added a second in the third of 13 minutes stoppage time against opponents ranked second in Africa behind Ivory Coast.
