Manchester City star, Riyad Mahrez has helped Algeria secure a spot at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
His stunning strike ensured Algeria a qualification after a 2-2 scored draw with Zimbabwe in Harare.
Andy Delort had put the defending champions upfront in the 34 minutes after he beat Talbert Shumba with a shocking ball.
Ladies and gentlemen .. Riyad Karim Mahrez.

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.
Algeria has now joined Cameroon and Senegal in qualifying for next year’s tournament after gaining 10 points ahead of Zimbabwe with five.
Riyad Mahrez has endured a tough start to the 2020/21 campaign with Manchester City, but everyone knows that he is still one of the world’s very best.
