2010 World Cup Qualifying: Algeria 1 - 0 Egypt

Algeria qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1986 with a disciplined if patchy display, in a match as testy as it was tense. Antar Yahia's winner emphasised the commitment to attack the Algerians have shown throughout qualifying: the scorer was a right-back on a far from unusual foray. "We played good football throughout the qualifiers and we showed great fair play," said Algeria's coach, Rabah Saadane. "I want to thank the supporters – it is an immense joy to have qualified for the World Cup for them."
