MALABO, Equatorial Guinea (AP) — Wilfried Bony scored with two headers Sunday to help give the Ivory Coast a 3-1 win over Algeria and a spot in the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations.

Bony nodded in a cross from Max Gradel in the 26th minute after being left completely alone at the far post. The Manchester City forward scored another in the 68th, heading in a free kick taken by club teammate Yaya Toure.

Gervinho added a third in injury time as the Algerians pushed forward in a desperate attempt to equalize.

Hilal Soudani scored Algeria's goal in the 51st, taking a pass from Riyad Mahrez that trickled through a weak Ivory Coast defense and beating goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.

The Ivorians will next face Congo on Wednesday in Bata.
