Youcef Belaili's goal fired Algeria into the Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 after they beat Senegal 1-0.
Algeria booked their spot in the Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 with a dour 1-0 win over Senegal on Thursday.
It was a match billed as a blockbuster between two of the best sides in African football but Youcef Belaili's second-half goal was the only moment of genuine quality in Cairo.
Even with Riyad Mahrez and Sadio Mane on the pitch, the forgettable Group C encounter was littered with an incredible 53 fouls and devoid of goalmouth action.
The Desert Foxes have now won both of their matches at the tournament under boss Djamel Belmadi.
