Algeria recorded the most emphatic victory of the second round of Africa’s 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament, crushing Tanzania 7-0 in Blida on Tuesday night.

The Fennec Foxes came into the match needing to only keep a clean sheet to ensure they advanced, having played to a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Dar Es Salaam.

In the end they did so much more, with Yacine Brahimi opening the scoring in the first minute to open the floodgates.

Islam Slimani and Faouzi Ghoulam each scored a brace, while Riyad Mahrez and Carl Medjani also got their names on the score sheet.

Tanzania’s efforts weren’t helped by the sending off of Mudathiri Abbas a few minutes before half time.

The massive victory sees Algeria advance 9-2 on aggregate and they will join 19 other teams in the draw for the third and final round of qualifying.
