Cameroon drew 1-1 with Algeria in their away match of the 2018 World Cup qualifier in Algiers. Algeria, coached by Serbian Milovan Rajevac, scored the opener through striker El Arbi Hillal Soudani in the seventh minute on Sunday evening before Benjamin Moukandjo equalized for the Indomitable Lions 17 minutes later.

Earlier in the day, Nigeria managed to secure a precious away win against Zambia 2-1, as the Super Eagles stand on top of Group 8 with three points, followed by Cameroon and Algeria with 1 point each, while Zambia is fourth with no points.

Nigeria opened the scoring through Arsenal starlet Alex Iwobi, before Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored a fantastic second to make the points safe for the visitors.

Collins Mbesuma pulled one back for Zambia in the 71st minute, but the hosts were unable to add to the scoreline and Nigeria held on to get all three points.

The second round of the Group B campaign is due on November 12, as Nigeria will host Algeria, while Zambia travels to Yaounde to face Cameroon.

Meanwhile, in Group E, Egypt came from behind to beat Congo 2-1. Mohamed Salah drew Egypt level after Ferebory Dore had given Congo the lead. Abdallah Saied sealed the win for Egypt with a 77th minute strike.

In Group A, Tunisia eased past Ghana 2-0. Aymen Abdennour and Änis Ben-Hatira got the goals in the second half.
