Riyad Mahrez scored a sensational free-kick in the 95th minute as Algeria beat Nigeria 2-1 to seal their place in the Africa Cup of Nations final.
Algeria led thanks to William Troost-Ekong’s own goal but Nigeria hit back through Odion Ighalo’s penalty, awarded following a VAR check.
Extra time was looming until Algeria, who have not been to the final since winning the tournament on home soil in 1990, won a free-kick on the edge of the box.
