No cap for Saïd as Algeria held by Gambia

Benrahma on bench as Algeria complete Africa Cup of Nations qualifying

23 March 2019

Already qualified Algeria signed off their Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Gambia in last night.

It was the hosts who took the lead just before the break in Bilda, Mehdi Abeid getting to the near post before whipping a high finish across goal and into the far corner. That appeared to be how it would end until Futty Danso hooked home in the first minute of second-half added time. 

The point wasn't enough to send Gambia through but Saïd and his teammates did secure top spot with the draw.

Saïd is likely to make his first international appearance in three-and-a-half years on Tuesday night when Algeria host Tunisia in a friendly match.
