Algeria win the Africa Cup of Nations


Algeria have won the Africa Cup of Nations after beating Senegal 1-0 in the final in Egypt.



Baghdad Bounedjah’s strike after just 79 seconds – the quickest final goal in the history of the competition – sealed victory for the Desert Foxes.

Senegal had a penalty overturned by VAR which only added to the cagey atmosphere and sweltering conditions at Cairo’s International Stadium.

But a solid defensive display from Algeria allowed them to hold their narrow lead and clinch a first AFCON title for 29 years.

Unlike in many other finals, the two sides went into the game having already met in the group stages, with Algeria emerging victorious with a 1-0 victory.
