In Pictures: Algeria crowned 2019 AFCON Champions

The curtains closed on Africa’s biggest football tournament on Friday night with Algeria taking the coveted trophy home.

Baghdad Bounedjah scored the all-important goal that denied the Lions of Teranga victory in the second minute.

Bounedjah’s deflected shot managed to loop over Senegal’s goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, propelling the Desert Foxes of Algeria to their second continental trophy after they emerged winners in 1990.

Here are some of the photos and videos from the finals.
