Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedja found the back of the net in the 2nd minute when his shot took a treacherous deflection off Sane and looped over the Senagelese goalkeeper into the net.



It is the North Africans second successful outing at the AFCON and the first after 29 years.

Senegal are yet to win the AFCON trophy.

It would be recalled that Nigeria’s Super Eagles defeated Tunisia 1-0 on Wednesday to win the third place match.
