2019 Africa Cup of Nations: Algeria beat Senegal to win final

A goal after just two minutes of play is what settled the 32nd edition of African Cup of Nations, AFCON, final between Algeria and Senegal at the Cairo International Stadium.

It becomes the second AFCON victory for Algeria who last won it in 1990 on home soil. The Desert Foxes went the entire competition without losing a game – beating Senegal twice en route.

For the Aliou Cisse Senegal side, it’s a second final disappointment. The first was in Mali 2002 when Cisse, as the skipper, led the Lions to the final only to be beaten by Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions.
