ALGERIAN FLAG Story: The final whistle of the Africa Cup final provoked wild celebrations among the large contingent of Algeria fans in Cairo late Friday (July 19) night.

It was a fitting end to a tournament that, with 24 teams for the first time, produced plentiful drama even if quality was sometimes lacking.

While Algerian fans celebrated on Cairo streets their Senegalese counterparts mourned after a freak second-minute goal gave the North African country a 1-0 win.

The game got off to an extraordinary start when Bounedjah collected the ball, burst forward and unleashed a shot that took a deflection off Sane.

Gomis stayed rooted to the spot, seemingly thinking that the ball was going out, but it dipped under the bar.

But Algeria sat back and allowed Senegal to claw their way back into the game.

The match comes just over a year after Senegal narrowly failed to advance from the group stage in the World Cup in Russia and 17 years after they were beaten on penalties by Cameroon in the 2002 African Cup of Nations final.
