Algeria 1-0 Egypt (World Cup Play-Offs) – Goals & Highlights

Algeria 1-0

Twenty years of hurt were put to bed as Algeria beat Egypt 1-0 to secure their place at the World Cup finals.

Egypt broke Algerian hearts in 1989 when pipping their bitter rivals to a place at Italia 90, but Algeria banished those memories thanks to Antar Yahia’s stunning strike on 40 minutes.

Egypt dominated the ball in the second half, but could not find a way past an organised defence as Algeria booked their place at the World Cup finals for the first time since 1986.
