#CAFAwards2019: Mahrez's free-kick strike against Nigeria wins Goal of the Year

Riyad Mahrez's free-kick strike against the Super Eagles in the semifinal of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations has been voted the Goal of the Year.

In July, Mahrez scored a sensational Injury time freekick to send Algeria to their first AFCON final in 29 years at the expense of Nigeria at the Cairo International stadium.

That goal has now won an award for the Manchester City winger.

Algeria went on to win the AFCON 2019 trophy after beating Senegal in the final.
