Algeria Get Controversial Penalty To Hold Unbeaten Super Eagles

Nigeria's Super Eagles hold Algeria to a 1-1 draw in their final African qualifying Group B FIFA 2018 World Cup fixture in Constantine on Friday night.

John Ogu put the Eagles ahead with a superb curler before Yacine Brahimi drew the hosts level from the penalty spot.

This means the Eagles finish the qualifying series unbeaten on 14 points while Algeria finished bottom on two points and without a win.

Islam Slimani almost gave Algeria the perfect start under one minute but could not direct his header towards goal.

In the 12th minute Algeria went close again following a well taken shot from the edge of the Eagles’ box by an Algerian player whose effort went just wide.
