Algeria fans jubilantly celebrated on the Old Kent Road last night after beating Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final.

The wild scenes saw fans let off fireworks to toast their 2-1 victory after team captain Riyad Mahrez scored a stunning free-kick only moments before the end of the match.

“Absolute SCENES on the Old Kent Road in London after Riyad Mahrez sends Algeria to the final. Congratulations!” said one observer.

Now the team will face Senegal in a final show-down on Friday.
