[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING]After twice coming back from a goal down, Algeria seemed to have secured a draw at Burkina Faso in the first leg of their African World Cup 2014 qualifying final-round series, but a controversial penalty call led to the winning goal for the Stallions in their 3-2 win in Ouagadougou.

Aristide Bance had missed a penalty in the first half but he didn't miss a second time to win the game after Zambian referee Janny Sikazweawarded a penalty for Essaid Belkalem's handball -- even though Belkalem's arms were folded behind his back and he was turning away when the ball struck from about five yards away hit his upper arm.

The Algerian players confronted Sikazwe and his assistant before Bance, whose penalty kick in the first half was saved by Rais M'bolhi, converted to give Burkina Faso a 3-2 lead heading into the second leg Nov. 19 in Blida.

Jonathan Pitroipa and Djakaridja Kone twice put the Burkinabes ahead, but Sofiane Feghouliand Carl Medjaniresponded for the Fennecs.

IVORY COAST-SENEGAL. Stars Didier Drogba, Gervinho and Salomon Kalou all came through with goals to give favored Ivory Coast a 3-1 win over Senegal.

Drogba and Gervinho scored in the first half for Elephants and Kalou added a third goal past former MLS keeper Bouna Coundoulearly in the second half before Papiss Demba Cisse responded late in stoppage time for Senegal, which must host the second leg in Morocco.

The African confederation issued a one-year ban on the Stade Leopold Senghor in Dakar after fans rioted during a Senegal-Ivory Coast African Cup qualifier last year.
