A goal by Baghdad Bounedjah after two minutes into the match was what settled the 32nd Edition of African Cup of Nations (AFCON), final between Algeria and Senegal at the Cairo International Stadium on Friday, July 19.
The victory is the second AFCON victory for Algeria who last won in 1990 in their country. The team went through the entire championship without losing a game.
As for Senegal, the loss marked the second final disappointment, the first was in Mali 2002 when Cisse as the skipper, led the team to the finals only to be beaten by Cameroon.
This is a huge achievement for the Fennec Foxes and a well-deserved victory for the team.
