Algeria seal last African place
Anthar Yahia scored a cracking volley for Algeria to give them a 1-0 win in their crucial sudden death play-off with Egypt for the final African place at the World Cup. Wild scenes were sparked at the final whistle as they ended a 23-year wait for glory.
I love it... I knew "The Desert Foxes" had it in them to beat "The Pharaohs" and claim the last spot. Mainly due to the sweet nickname. Algeria is going to South Africa.
