Algeria have won the Africa Cup of Nations

They beat Senegal 1-0 in Cairo on Friday night to win the tournament for only the second time.

Baghdad Bounedjah scored a freak goal in the second minute of the match to secure the win.

His shot deflected off a defender and floated over goalkeeper Alfred Gomes, who could only watch helplessly as the ball made its way in to the back of the net.

Algeria last won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1990.
