Riyad Mahrez Scores As Algeria Sinks Guinea 3-0

Algeria managed to book a place in the 2019 AFCON’s quarter final after they thrashed Guinea 3-0.

Algeria started in an electrifying fashion, as they broke the deadlock in the 24th minute. Mohamed Belaili slotted Baghdad Bounedjah’s pass into the back of Ibrahim Kone’s net.

Mahrez extended Algeria’s lead in the 53rd minute. Ismael Bennacer found the Manchester City winger, who finished the ball past Kone with great precision.

Adam Ounas came on to replace Belaili in the 77th minute.

Just five minutes after coming on, Ounas scored the third of the night for his side. The super sub converted Youcef Attal’s well-placed cross with a brilliant effort to seal an impressive 3-0 victory for the Desert Warriors.

The win takes Algeria to the 2019 AFCON quarter final and are set to face the winner between Ivory Coast and Mali.
