Sofiane Feghouli's deflected effort made it 2-0

The Valencia midfielder, the heartbeat of the Algerian national side over the last year, had the last of two procedures to remove a wisdom tooth and has been replaced in the squad by Porto striker Nabil Ghilas.

Algeria play Slovenia in Blida in their first international match since securing their place a World Cup finals spot last November.
