AC Milan have three players representing their national teams in the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon at the moment. Here is a look at how they are doing after match day two:

Fode Ballo-Toure - Senegal - Group B

The left back missed out on the clash against Guinea as he was in quarantine following his positive test with the coronavirus. Senegal were held to a 0-0 draw but remain atop their group heading into the final match day. Ballo-Toure has surprisingly already tested negative for the coronavirus last night as per the national team’s Twitter account. He looks likely to start the final game against Malawi.

Ismael Bennacer - Algeria - Group E

Bennacer made his first appearance of the tournament yesterday as his side were shocked by Equatorial Guinea and beaten 1-0. The defending champions are on the brink of being knocked out as they are yet to win a game and have just 1 point from 2 games sitting at the bottom of their group. Bennacer played the full 90 minutes but his side really struggled to beat the opposition keeper and were unlucky not to get a goal.

Franck Kessie - Ivory Coast - Group E

A tough game for the midfielder as he missed a penalty following a stunning save from the impressive Sierra Leone goalkeeper Kamara. His side were winning but got stunned with a 90+3” equaliser following a howler from the keeper essentially providing an assist for the opposition. Ivory Coast drew 2-2 with Sierra Leone as they sit in 1st place but face defending champions Algeria on the final match day.
