Algeria crowned the title of the tenth edition of the Arab Football Cup "Qatar 2021" after defeating Tunisia with two goals without a response, after the extension, Saturday, in the final of the two teams in the World Cup "Al-Bayt" stadium.  The match started with clear offensive intentions from the two teams, as the first half saw more than one opportunity to score the net. The first was a fixed ball, through which the ball reached Bilal Al-Aifa, the center of the Tunisian defense, who headed it with a strong head that nullified the effect of the Algerian crossbar.  At a time when Tunisia diversified its ways of playing based on direct attempts and shooting from afar, the elements of the Algerian team focused more on penetration from the sides and crosses, which almost succeeded in one of them to take precedence, had it not been for Tayeb Meziani’s failure to deal with a golden pass by his foot His Baghdad Bounedjah.  Despite the search for each side to visit the other side's net, the first period ended in a draw without goals, so the excitement continued in the second half with the entry of Algeria in a high offensive format, in which it relied on the movements of Youssef Belaili and striker Baghdad Bounedjah, who threatened Moez Hassan's goal with a powerful shot that passed next to the left post.  The Tunisian response was present by trying to deprive the opponent of playing and possession of the ball and then penetrating from the depth with short passes that created many problems for the Algerian defense.  And the penultimate minute knew the most dangerous chances of the meeting after an attack in which Saif Al-Din Al-Jaziri was alone in the Algerian penalty, but he shot the ball away from the three wood, amid shock and sighing from the "Carthage Eagles" fans.  After the official time of the match ended in a tie without goals, the two teams resorted to two additional periods, the first of which saw Algeria score the first final goal, which came after an organized attack that Amir Saoud ended with a wonderful shot that hit the left side of Moez Hassan's goal.  The elements of the Tunisian team tried to remedy the situation with terrible offensive pressure. The Algerian defense, behind him, the veteran goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi, managed to confront him and keep the nets of the "Desert Warriors" clean until Yassin Brahimi secured his country's victory with a second goal that came with the last moments, to announce that Algeria won its first title in championship.  It is noteworthy that Tunisia won the Arab Cup title on a single occasion, which was in 1963 in the first edition of the Arab Championship.  Five teams won the Arab Cup during the previous 9 editions of the tournament, and the Iraqi team is the most crowned with 4 titles, followed by Saudi Arabia with two titles, and Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia with one title.
