Mahrez magic sets up a Les Fennecs vs Teranga Lions AFCON Final - Belmadi & Rohr

It’s been 29 years since Algeria last won the African Cup of Nations and on Friday they will attempt to win it for the first time since then, with a son of the soil on their bench. This follows Algeria’s 2-1 over Nigerian in a second AFCON semi-final played at the Cairo International stadium in Egypt on Sunday night. Les Fennecs head coach Djamel Belmadi reflects on this memorable victory before they meet Senegal in the final at the same venue. Manchester City star attacker Mahrez netted his third goal of the tournament. Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr says maybe his players were thinking about the extra time when referee Bakary Gassama punished Wilfried Ndidi for a foul on the edge of the box, which led to this winner.
