Adam Ounas scored a brace as Algeria maintained their perfect start to the African Cup of Nations with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Tanzania.
Having already secured top spot in Group C, Djamel Belmadi elected to rest a host of first-team names including Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez and Al Sadd attacker Bagdad Boundjah.
Still, Les Verts made a quick start to proceedings and could have had the lead within three minutes. Surging up the field on a counter, Hicham Boudaoui picked up the ball inside the box but the teenager spurred his chance just wide.
Ten minutes later Ounas had his first chance of note, pouncing on a Tanzania clearance but the first time strike was off target. Algeria continued to press and Ounas missed another opportunity to open the scoring, showing plenty of pace the Napoli winger drilled another effort past the far post.
Ounas was at the heart of everything good in Les Verts attacking play. A clipped long ball fell to Islam Slimani who dispatched the ball into the bottom corner. Giving the North Africans a well-deserved lead.
Tanzania buckled under the pressure and duly conceded five minutes later, with Ounas deservedly getting on the score sheet. The 22-year old exchanged a neat pass with Slimani and drilled the ball home.
It wasn’t all from Ounas who was comfortably the best Algerian player on the pitch, with minutes left in the first half, the winger comfortably latched onto a long ball rounded keeper Metacha Mnata and fired home. To complete the perfect start for the Algerians.
