Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez helps Algeria to qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations after a 2-2 scored draw with Zimbabwe in Harare.
Andy Delort had put the defending champions up front in the 34 minutes after he beat Talbert Shumba with a shocking ball.
However, Mahrez scored Algeria’s second goal after he was set up by the Montpellier striker as former Leicester City star superbly doubled the bet with a cross-shot with the right foot.
But in their enclosure, the Warriors have made it a point of honor to return with Knowledge Musona and Prince Dube ensure both sides share a point.
