Riyad Mahrez Scores Stunning 95th Minute Free-Kick To Send Algeria Into AFCON Final

Riyad Mahrez sent Algeria into the first Africa Cup of Nations final for 29 years with a stunning last-gasp free-kick against Nigeria.

The score was 1-1 heading into the dying embers when the Manchester City winger stood over a free-kick. And with the very last kick off the game, the skipper curled in a sensational set-piece before wheeling away in euphoria.

Absolute nerves of steel from Mahrez, who used his wand of a left foot to devastating effect.

Mahrez's dramatic free-kick broke Nigeria hearts and sets up a final clash with Senegal next Friday after Aliou Cisse's side beat Tunisia 1-0 through an extra time own goal from Dylan Bronn earlier on in the day.

Will Algeria reign supreme or is Senegal's name on the trophy?
