Algeria's men's national football team head coach Djamel Belmadi praised his team for Friday's win at the Africa Cup of Nations final against Senegal, describing it as "extraordinary", while speaking at a post-match press conference alongside Senegal head coach Aliou Cisse.
Belmadi expressed pride as he highlighted it was the first time Algeria wins the Cup of Nations outside the country.
Algeria's squad scored in every game they played in this year's tournament, racking up 13 goals in total.
Belmadi also pointed that his team performed well despite approaching the competition at a time of "difficulty."
Senegal coach Cisse congratulated Belmadi for the historic win, but blamed Senegal's defeat on the inability to recover from an early goal.
The Senegal coach said his players did not lack determination or chances but missed lucidity during the game.
After winning the tournament in 1990 as the host country, the Algerian team became champion of the continent on foreign soil for the first time, thanks to striker Baghdad Bounedjah's decisive second-minute goal.
