Marchday 3 saw Algeria take on Tanzania in the Africa Cup of Nations’ Group C. Riyad Mahrez was rested for this match, where he eventually came on as a substitute late in the second half.

The match saw a routine Algerian win. By half time, the Desert Foxes were ahead 3-0, and they began to plan for the knockout stages. The second half was rather drab, and by full time match ended 3-0. The result saw Algeria win the group with nine points and three clean sheets.

Algeria will face either the Democratic Republic of the Congo or Guinea in the Round of 16. The match will be held 7 July.
