Algeria beat Senegal 1-0 and lift their second African Cup of Nations on Friday evening.
Algeria scored early as Baghdad Bounedjah cut in from the left and hit a shot that was deflected in. Senegal kept attacking and initially won a second-half penalty but the referee changed his mind after reviewing replays. Senegal failed to beat Algeria’s defensive wall and the final whistle was blown. This was Senegal’s lost in a final for a second time after losing the 2002 final to Cameroon.
