Algeria edge Tunisia to win FIFA Arab Cup

Algeria laid down the marker ahead of next year’s AFCON by beating Tunisia 2-0 after extra-time to become champions of the inaugural FIFA Arab Cup on Saturday night.

Goals from Amir Sayoud and Yacine Brahimi saw Algeria add the FIFA Arab Cup to the AFCON title they won in 2019.

After 90 minutes of football ended goalless, the deadlock was broken in the 99th minute as Sayoud curled home a fantastic effort past rooted Tunisia goalkeeper Mouez Hassen.

Then, right at the death and with Tunisia keeper Hassen desperately contesting a corner in the Algerian area, veteran playmaker Brahimi raced on to a clearance, ran all the way to the Carthage Eagles’ goal, and placed the ball into an empty net.
