At the final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the Desert Warriors of Algeria defeated Senegal after scoring an early goal at the Cairo International Stadium in Egypt on Friday, July 19.
Both teams had faced off in group stages of the tournament with Algeria defeating the Teranga Lions but the final poses an entirely different prospect.
With this , Algeria is winning the Africa Cup of Nations for the second time.
Baghdad Bounedjah’s shot took a huge deflection off Salif Sane and looped over goalkeeper Alfred Gomes.
Senegal, who have never won the competition, were awarded a penalty for handball in the second half but it was overturned after a VAR review.
Algeria closed out the rest of the game to win their first title since 1990.
