A first-half goal by defender Antar Yahya has given Algeria a 1-0 victory over rivals from Egypt and a berth in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Yahya, who plays in a German club, scored the winner in the 39th minute in the playoff match held in Sudan when he took advantage of a lapse of concentration by Egyptian defenders to hit a half-volley with his right foot from close range.


In the second half, Egypt had two chances to level the score but Algerian goalie Fawzi Chaouchi saved.
