Algeria beat Nigeria 2-1 to enter AFCON Finals on Sunday.
Riyad Mahrez rifled in a stoppage-time free-kick to earn Algeria a dramatic victory over three-time champions Nigeria and set up a rematch with Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations final.
Algeria led through a first-half own goal by William Troost-Ekong before Nigeria equalised with an Odion Ighalo penalty awarded after a VAR review, but Mahrez blasted in from 20 yards with the last kick of the match to send the Desert Foxes through to their first final since lifting the trophy in 1990.
