#SFGAfcon20 – Hocine Achiou v Egypt, 2004

One of AFCON’s great solo goals. Some goals are not wonderful because of simply their sheer beauty, but also because of the beauty of their context. Hocine Achiou was a right back. Algeria were facing their bitter rivals. The score was 1-1. This was the 85th minute. Achiou’s magnificent surge was the winner. And the win was decisive in Algeria progressing ahead of Egypt from Group C, sending them home in the process. Achiou will be remembered forever.
