Algeria midfielder Ismael Bennacer has been named 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Player of the Tournament.

Although he never found the net throughout the competition, Bennacer played a key role in his side emerging as African champions for the first time since 1990.

His compatriot Rais M'Bolhi was named Man of the Match after a fine performance in Algeria’s 1-0 win over Senegal in the final.

He becomes the second Algerian ever to claim this honour after Rabah Madjer in Afcon 1990.
