#Brazil2014: Algeria Record First World Cup Win Since 1982

share on:

A stunning first half performance for Algeria was the foundation for a 4-2 win over South Korea in their 2014 FIFA World Cup Group H match.

The win is Algeria’s first at the World Cup finals since Spain 1982.

Islam Slimani broke the deadlock in the 26th minute, before Rafik Halliche and Abdelmoumene Djabou made it 3-0 prior to half-time.

Son Heung-min pulled one back for Korea after the break, but Algeria’s three-goal advantage was soon restored when Yacine Brahimi found the net in the 62nd minute.

Koo Ja-cheol reduced his side’s deficit to two once again 10 minutes later, yet the Koreans had left themselves with too much to do as Algeria held on for a memorable triumph.
