Its a home call for the Super Eagles, as Nigeria was knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2019 in Egypt on Sunday.

Nigeria vs Algeria

Riyad Mahrez rifled in a stoppage-time free-kick to earn Algeria a dramatic 2-1 victory over the three-time champions and set up a rematch with Senegal in the final.

Algeria led through a first-half own goal by William Troost-Ekong before Nigeria equalised with an Odion Ighalo penalty awarded after a VAR review.

However, as extra time looked necessary, Mahrez blasted in from 20 yards with the last kick of the match to send the Desert Foxes through to their first final since lifting the trophy for the only time in 1990.

Algeria will take on Senegal for the title on 19 July, in a repeat of a group stage clash they won 1-0.
