ALGIERS, Nov.10 (Xinhua) -- Algerian soccer team on Friday was held 1-1 by Nigeria on the final day of World Cup's qualifiers in Hamlaoui Stadium in Constantine, 420 km eastern Algiers.

The newly appointed coach of Algeria, Rabah Madjer, wanted to open his mission with a win, despite the absence of key players, including Hillal Soudani and Nabil Bentaleb.

John Ogu of the Super Egales scored the opener through a curled shot (63'), while Yacine Brahimi equalized as he successfully converted a penalty into goal.

Nigeria has already secured a berth in the World Cup 2018 in Russia, after grabbing 14 points to top Group B. Algeria wrapped up the qualifiers with only 2 points, in the last spot. Enditem
