Riyad Mahrez has rocked yesterday. The front man scored twice for Algeria and save the team to defeat against Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe was also played terrific yesterday and the game score finished with 2-2 draw.
But it is really surprising to all the performance of Zimbabwe. Midfielder Mahachi’s low shot from corner and front man Mushekwi penalty made the score 2, when Algeria scored only 1. Till last Mahrez team fought for draw. And the match result would be that, nobody thought so.
Algeria tried their best. Before Mahrez score they tried twice but unfortunately the shot failed to reach the goal. Warriors goalkeeper Tatenda Mukuruva hit protect that very nicely.
Algeria was very confident about the match. They were sure about that the opening match will give them victory. But the result being blowing something other. Now their pressure got increased and the other two have to win. But the fact is that rest two team are very tough. To win against Senegal and Tunisia really very tough.
Zimbabwe played just awesome. Khama Brilliant just superb on yesterday. In their attack Algerian goalkeeper could not do anything. The warriors played brilliant from the starting.
But Algeria bounce back after the half time. After interval they suddenly improved match. Their back was really increased the interest of the game. And once again the game back into the track.
Mahrez proved himself once again. They become the saviour of full team. If the team save to go down from the first match, the credit goes to only Mahrez. The Leicester City star’s twice score save the team from the defeat.
The Warriors can be played more terrific, if their key player has not kicked out from the running match. In 12th minutes the injury of Musona forced him to leave the field. For the gap of him, the Warriors faced many problem. But they tackle the thing very sensitively.
Algeria were also damn good. But the star players of the team has not given their best on field. There are no doubt about Mahrez efforts in the game. But the team could not run to depend on one. To earn gain it’s need to the 11 players equal effort.
Apart of Mahrez there also presenting some other star player from different reputed club. But unfortunately they were not to seem in speed yesterday. Likely that was the main cause of the result. If they all gave their best, the match result would be some different.
