Verus zero quality by Senegal + one crazy dude ref = a shitshow.

Up there with the worst officiating i've seen

Unreal amounts of time wasted by Algeria as well as reckless fouls

One bit of quality from Sadio when his boot came off and somehow still managed a shot in.

4 minutes?! Really? What a shambolic end to a shambolic tournament. Insane that you cant even put into words how terrible the refereeing has been. Weak.

The anti-football team win it what a travesty. I'm sorry but there is something seriously amiss, four minutes was just disgusting.

This is how shit Algeria has always played and they never got punished for it because of how shit the officiating in Africa is.

Senegal was shit in this game though, Mane was surrounded by utter dross who have no IQ whatsoever.

Copa America and AFCON are utter shit shows of a tournament, never waste my time watching them anymore. Nothing but cynical play every time.

The important thing is that Sadio is uninjured and now gets a few weeks before returning to the club. It's a shame for him and for Senegal, but he'll be raring to go again in a few weeks.

Mane played until 19th July for that? Senegal should've helped us all out and got beat in the first fortnight if that's all they could muster. If ever you want perspective on how far AC Milan have fallen consider they used to employ M'Baye Niang. Nothing more needs to be said.

It is laughable how the commentators are trying to make out that Algeria have earned this win.

What an absolutely shockingly bad tournament this has been - I was really looking forward to it, thinking it'd tide me through the close season but I can't remember a single decent game. Every one I saw was totally joyless and devoid of any entertainment value whatsoever. The same goes for the Copa America... and the little I saw of the Womens World Cup was pretty dire too.  International football in any form is the pits these days.

Thank fuck for the return of some proper footy - Liverpool pre-season friendlies.  ;D

You aren't really wrong. There were a few good women's games however. But the Copa America, AFCON, and the Gold Cup were pretty bad.

Dont think you qualify for an opinion by watching 10 minutes of 1 half. You dont.

Yeah, the cynical play & utter shite refereeing in both tournaments this summer has done me. At least our players came through unscathed.
