Algeria are through to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after beating Ivory Coast in penalties. 

The two sides were deadlocked at 1-1 after extra time, meaning that spot kicks were needed to determine a winner. 

In the end it was the 1990 winners who came out on top to book their spot in the final four. 

Elsewhere Madagascar’s fairytale run came to a screeching halt as they were outplayed by Tunisia. 

The 2004 winners recorded an easy 3-0 quarterfinals victory over the minnows.
