Senegal 0-1 Algeria: Five things we learned

first_imgAlgeria beat Senegal in the final of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations staged in Egypt. The Al Sadd striker Baghdad Bounedjah scored the solitary goal as his strike came off an outstretched Salif Sane with his deflected shot leaving Senegalese goalkeeper Alfred Gomis helpless. Djamel Belmadi is now the first local coach to win the title since Stephen Keshi achieved this feat with Nigeria in 2013. Here are Five things we learned from the final.A forgettable finaleThe final did not live up to its potential in terms of the quality displayed. After Baghdad Bounedjah’s goal in the second minute, the Algerians sat back with no intent to add another goal as early as the first half. Senegal piled the pressure on the Algerians but misfired all game as none of their 12 shots went past Algerian goalkeeper Rais M’Bolhi. The Algerians, on the other hand, proved to be efficient as they had two shots on goal which were all on target. There were a combined fifty fouls in this year’s finals from both teams showing the amount of physicality and preventing the game to flow freely. Aliou Cisse no match for Djamel Belmadi.These two coaches have shown that they are the best coaches out of the pile on the African continent currently. Djamel Belmadi’s side were noted for being the best defensive side conceding two goals throughout the tournament. Aliou Cisse’s side did not take long as they found their feet and performed efficiently except losing to Belmadi’s side twice. On both occasions, Cisse had no answers for Belmadi’s tactics losing to him in the group game and again in the final. Senegal beat Algeria thrice and drew once when both coaches used to be active footballers for their respective national teams. It seems to have changed since they both took in charge of their national teams. Aggressive AlgeriansThe Desert Foxes got their desired quick start and scored one of the strangest opening goals in a final. Baghdad Bounedjah’s goal gave Djamel Belmadi’s side the desired start they have been looking for all tournament. The Algerians look to score first from the sustained pressure and sit deep. After the goal, there were a series of fouls from the Algerians. They tackled aggressively all game committing 14 fouls in the first half and 32 fouls the entire match. A combination of tough tackles and tactical fouls from the North Africans was the highlight of their finals after their goal. Ismael Bennacer the unsung heroThe midfielder was the engine behind Algeria’s title success right from the beginning of the tournament. Playing alongside the solid Adlene Guedioura in the heart of the Algerian midfield, Bennacer delivered both defensively and offensively. Ismael Bennacer was one of two players in this year’s tournament to complete more than 10 dribbles and 10 plus tackles alongside Riyad Mahrez. The Empoli midfielder completed an impressive 12 dribbles and made 10 successful tackles. Bennacer also notched a tournament high three assists tying with Ivory Coast’s Franck Kessie. The 21-year-old deservedly won the player and young player of the tournament.  Algeria deserved championsThe Algerians played remarkably well during the whole tournament and carried their impressive run of form to the finals. The Desert Foxes scored 13 goals in the tournament, conceding two and won every group game without conceding a single goal. Coach Djamel Belmadi showed his tactical prowess by adopting a system that did not solely rely on Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez. The system allowed most of their players to shine as Baghdad Bounedjah, Youcef Belaili, Adlene Guedioura and player of the tournament Ismael Bennacer delivered consistent performances throughout. Their defensive discipline was also impressive as Djamel Benlamri, Aissa Mandi and Ramy Bensabaini protected goalkeeper Rais M’Bolhi. Adam Ounas and Islam Slimani also played their instrumental roles from the bench whenever they were called upon.One of the most notable achievements for the Desert Foxes was that they never conceded first in a game during the tournament. It would have been surprised if Algeria who were the most balanced team in the tournament did not lift the trophy.  —last_img read more

Think about cleaning your cell phone of germs too

first_imgMASON CITY — We’ve been telling you about washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time, as well as covering your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow, but you should also think about making sure you clean your cell phone often. The owner of CPR Cell Phone Repair in Mason City Phil Biermann says your cell phone catches a lot of things from the air.  They collect anything in their environments when it comes to people coughing, sneezing, all that stuff, are just netting all that stuff in. It collects so much of the microbial viruses and all that stuff.” Biermann says don’t use water to clean your phone.  “Even though some people have water-resistant phones, there’s still a lot of areas that are susceptible to the damages from any type of actual water or moisture. The other one is some people are spraying on their phone, do not spray on the phone. That again, they’re still certain percentages of moisture in a lot of cleaners and everything that go on there.”Biermann says you can use an anti-bacterial wipe to carefully clean all parts of your phone.   “Avoid a lot of the open areas like your speakers and charge port and microphone hole areas and all that. If you’re going to use a spray or anything, spray on with a nice soft cloth, don’t douse it too much, and then you can go over it. Don’t overly do it to where it’s just soaking up with moisture and all that, but enough to kind of buff and clean it out and get it nice and clean. And not just the screen, but the backs of the phone and all that stuff too.”Biermann says it’s not a bad idea to clean your phone multiple times a day.  “With what’s going on right now, to do it a couple of times a day is really good, because you can wash your hands and then you go straight to grabbing your phone, you just completely defeated the purpose of everything. As often as you feel comfortable with, but the more and more moisture you’re putting on the phone, the more chances  for any type of issues you can get from from having moisture on your phone.” Biermann says besides possibly picking up coronavirus-related germs on your phone, if you take any of your devices into your bathroom, they are likely covered with fecal-related germs.last_img read more
