Some children in Algeria are currently trolling the Super Eagles of Nigeria on social media following their
disappointing and heartbreaking defeat last Sunday when Manchester City striker, Riyad Mahrez copped a late goal,
ruining their chance of getting into the AFCON final.
Super Eagles defender, William Ekong had scored an own goal in the first half to give Algeria a 1-0 lead before
striker, Odion Ighalo restored parity for Nigeria via a penalty.
Odion Ighalo’s goal made Nigerians really elated and they were expecting the match to be dragged into an extra
time before Leicester City star, Wilfred Ndidi committed a foul.
The referee awarded a free kick to Algeria in the additional time which had Riyad Mahrez step forward to score for
Mahrez’s goal sent Algeria to the final of the AFCON 2019 where they will face Senegal. Photos have been trending
on social media of Algerian kids reacting the free kick that was scored by Mahrez so as to mock Super Eagles.
