Illustration for article titled Libya-Algeria Soccer Brawl Featured A Perfect Flying Kick To The Head

It's qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations, and yesterday Algeria met Libya in neutral Morocco (since Libya's still not one of the more stable countries.) An Algerian strike in the 88th minute broke a scoreless draw and gave the Desert Foxes an all-important "away" goal. As the whistle blew on full time, players and supporters clashed over who the heck knows. The second leg will be in Algiers next month. I'm sure both sides will have forgotten all about this by then.


For those keeping score, that photo is Algeria's Islam Slimani destroying Mohamed El-Mughrabi. Here's some video of the brawl:
