The African Cup of Nations progressed to Day 3 on Tuesday and it was full of tightly-contested matches.

Although there was only one goal across the three matches, there's been a physical and intense nature surrounding the competition so far.

Kelechi Iheanacho helped guide Nigeria to a massive three points after knocking off Mohamed Salah and Egypt 1-0.

Meanwhile, the day kicked off with defending champions Algeria drawing Sierra Leone 0-0 as Riyad Mahrez and Co. aim to repeat as AFCON holders in 2022.

Algeria extended its unbeaten streak to 35 straight matches with the draw though, putting the Desert Warriors to positive results away from tying Italy for the all-time international record.

Sudan and Guinea-Bissau also played to a scoreless draw in a back-and-forth affair despite neither team finding the back of the net.

All matches are available in the United States on beIN Sports, Fubo TV and Fanatiz.
