“Mahrez is chasing Bernardo’s 5 winner’s medals in a single season” – A lot of Manchester City fans are heaping praise on Riyad Mahrez after he dragged Algeria to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.
On Sunday night Mahrez’s Algeria beat Guinea 3-0, to reach the next stage of the Africa Cup of Nations, and with Egypt knocked out they will fancy their chances of winning the trophy for the second time.
Mahrez has been instrumental to their progress so far scoring two, but his goal in the last round was sensational – picking up a cross from Ismael Bennacer the 28-year-old produced a sublime first touch, which took the opposing left back out of the game and then in the same movement lashed the ball into the far corner.
It was a goal of pure class and was a reminder of just how good the former Leicester City man can be, but a lack of consistent appearances for Guardiola’s side has meant that City fans are yet to see the best of Mahrez.
Despite this City fans, are delighted for their winger.
See the best of their reactions below.
