Int’l Friendly: Mahrez On Target As Algeria Seal 2-1 Win To Continue Dominance Over Super Eagles

The Desert Foxes of Algeria continued their impressive streak against the Super Eagles as they recorded a 2-1 win in Tuesday’s international friendly in Oran.

Terem Moffi gave the Super Eagles the lead early in the first half but goals from Riyad Mahrez and Youcef Atal sealed the comeback win.

It was the Eagles who broke the deadlock on 9th minute as Moffi slotted into an empty net after Kelechi Iheanacho’s initial shot was blocked.

In the 29th minute Ademola Lookman thought he had doubled the Super Eagles lead but he was flagged for offside.

Mahrez drew Algeria level from the penalty spot on 41 minutes, after Frank Onyeka fouled Ramy Bensebaini who followed up on a rebound which came off the post.

In the 61st minute Algeria went 2-1 up thanks to Atal sent in a long range strike which beat Uzoho.

The result means Algeria have now won their last four encounters with the Super Eagles.
