Mohamed Delahi Yali Scores Historic Goal as Mauritania Qualifies for African Cup Eighth Final

Mohamed Delahi Yali (37) scored for Mauritania, which clustered in its region and implemented a tight defensive plan, achieving its first victory ever in its third participation in the African Cup, which allowed it to qualify for the eighth final among the best four teams that finished third in the six groups.

After losing with a last-gasp penalty goal against Burkina Faso and another 2-3 defeat against Angola, Al-Mourabitoun achieved their first victory, which gave them a historic qualification. It was also their first victory over Algeria after 11 matches.

Mauritania Comoros coach Amir Abdo said in television statements, “We believed in ourselves and achieved what we wanted. I am proud of what the players have achieved. What we have achieved so far is an achievement.”

Algeria entered the match demanding more wins in order to avoid being eliminated from the group stage for the second time in a row, after drawing with Angola 1-1 and then Burkina Faso 2-2, especially since they had missed a win since skipping Senegal in the 2019 final in Cairo.

Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi made three changes to his starting lineup, which tied with Burkina Faso. He included defender Amine Togay, and wingers Adam Ouass on the right and Mohamed Amin Amoura on the left.

Wannas and Amoura were lively and dangerous when they and their team participated late against Burkina Faso in the last match.

The Algerian players surrounded their counterparts in Mauritania, who relied on rebounds that posed some danger.

From his preferred position on the right corridor, he dribbled and dribbled before firing a shot with his left, which he directed to the corner with the skill of goalkeeper Babakar Niass, who is tall (19).

Al-Mourabitoun players began to enter the atmosphere of the match and pose a threat.

Omar Gassama shot, but the Algerian defense blocked the shot, and from a corner that followed, Mandria pushed the ball to the edge of the area, and after a darbeka it reached Delahi Yali inside the area, and he shot it forcefully into the right corner of the ground for Anthony Mandria’s goal (37).

The Mauritanian players were able to completely surround the top scorer, Baghdad Bounedjah, and he almost did not appear during the first half.

In order to activate the amendment, Belmadi brought in his star Riyad Mahrez, who had a normal performance in the first two matches, in place of Houssem Aouar at half-time.

The two teams exchanged attacks during the first minutes, with Ounas and Bounedjah shooting, then Delahaye Yali responded with a header from inside the area (50).

Abu Bakari Quetta almost finished matters and dealt the final blow to Algeria after he started, dribbled and penetrated the area, but his shot went high (56).

After a mistaken exit by Nias, Blayli took control of the ball and shot strongly from outside the area, but the defense dispersed it in front of the empty goal (66).

Then Belmadi continued to push his offensive cards, bringing in veteran Islam Soleimani in place of Ammoura (69).

The brilliant goalkeeper Nias (1.96 cm) imposed himself as the hero of the match with his golden saves.

After an exchange of balls in front of the Algeria area, substitute Bakary Camara shot strongly, but Mandria blocked it (82).

The referee blew the final whistle, announcing Algeria’s second successive exit from the group stage, and Mauritania was extremely happy with the victory and first qualification in its third participation.
