On this day two years ago, Algeria booked their place in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final with a 2-1 win over Nigeria at Cairo International Stadium.
An own goal from William Troost-Ekong was cancelled out by Odion Ighalo’s second-half penalty and with the game on the cusp of extra-time, Player of the Tournament Ismaël Bennacer won a free-kick on the edge of the area.

The Manchester City winger would go on to lead his team past Senegal in the final as Algeria claimed their second continental crown.
