Algeria 1-1 Nigeria: Referee Abracadabra Save Foxes

Super Eagles of Nigeria ended their Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers on a high note after they were forced into a draw by the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

Super Eagles which already booked their spot in the mundial entered the last game with fresh legs because of inquiries to several starters in the team.
John Ogu open the scoring with a tremendous 62nd minute strike after a fruitless one hour of football.
The left footer curler from the Israeli based midfielder was cancelled out by a Referee manufactured penalty awarded to Yashim Brahimi with 120seconds left which the FC Porto winger who was supposed to be sent off few minutes before for an headbutt converted expertly against a calamitous Ikechukwu Ezenwa in goal for Nigeria.
The result ensures that Nigeria end the Campaign unbeaten with 14points out of a possible 18 while Algeria finishes bottom with 2points.
