Ivory Coast didn't need Didier Drogba to earn a berth in the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations on Saturday, while Emmanuel Adebayor was crucial to keep Togo's hopes of advancing alive.

The Elephants beat Tunisia 3-0 despite keeping Drogba in the reserves for most of the match in Rustenburg, while Adebayor came through in Togo's 2-0 win by scoring a first-half goal that keeps his team a draw or a win away from the next round.

Togo will decide its fate in a match against Tunisia next Wednesday.

Togo's win was marked by a broken goalpost that stopped the match for 15 minutes, and for Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic kicking the ball in the referee's direction because he didn't call a penalty kick in his team's favor.
