Riyad Mahrez’s match winner against Nigeria was certainly a special serve and one fans in Algeria will remember for a long time.
Mahrez beautifully curled his free kick past a wall of six Nigerian players including Onyekuru who formed the base; the crocodile move.
The scene has become a sensation back home with little Algerian kids recreating the scenes and social media is loving it.
CAF shared pictures of Algeria’s next generation of football stars reliving the moment on the streets in the North African country.
Always an inspiration to his people…@Mahrez22 🤩

That winner ensured Algeria returned to the final of the AFCON for the first time since 1990.
