It’s over in Harare where Zimbabwe held Algeria in check. Led 0-2 after goals from Delort and Mahrez, the Warriors were able to reverse the trend. The four changes made at the break by coach Zdravko Logarusić had a big impact, as his men largely dominated physically affected Fennecs. It was Dube, another entrant, who equalized in the 82nd minute of a pleasant match despite a more than difficult lawn. Algeria maintains its invincibility, which now stands at 22 games.
