Madjid Bougherra led Algeria national team left it late to book their place in the final of the Arab Cup going on in Qatar, after Youcef Belaili netted a winner in the 107th minute of the second half stoppage time.

The African champions beat the host 2-1 in the semi finals of the tournament, which is used as a test event for next year’s World Cup billed for Qatar.

The Desert Foxes had been on course for a routine 1-0 victory before Polish referee Szymon Marciniak added nine minutes of stoppage time, with Qatar’s Mohamed Muntari equaliser in the 97th minute.

The match saw just four substitutions and no major injury incidents after the break, leaving some in the stadium wondering where the added time came from as Algeria went on to booked a spot in the final.

After the game the Algeria boss Bougherra had mixed emotions and said: “I was not happy at all.”

“When the referee came to me and said nine minutes, it was unbelievable. He came to me coach we will have nine minutes like something he negotiated with me. And it was never nine minutes.”

Following Muntari’s goal been review by VAR, it means more stoppage time will be added by the referee, who then awarded Algeria a penalty in the 104th minute of the game which was scored by Belaili who had missed his first attempt before scoring the rebound.
