Algeria came from behind three times to earn a share of the spoils after their Group J, Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia ended 3-3 at the Addis Ababa Stadium on Tuesday.

The win sees Algeria maintain their spot at the top pf the qualifying group with ten points, followed by Ethiopia in second with five points.

Seychelles are third in the group with four points despite their 2-1 loss to Lesotho in an early qualification match. Lesotho are bottom of Group J with three points.

Getaneh Kebede scored his first of two on the day on the half hour mark to give Ethiopia a 1-0 lead.

Algeria, though, fought back and equalised two minutes before the break courtesy of a strike from Islam Slimani, 1-1.

Getaneh Kebede scored his second of the game and restored his country’s lead five minutes into the second half, 2-1.

Algeria hit back once more just after the hour mark when Aissa Mandi found the back of the net, 2-2.

Two minutes later Dawi Fikadu gave Ethiopia the lead for the third time, but yet again it was not to last after a penalty goal from Faouzi Ghoulam in the 85th minute gave Algeria hard-fought draw, 3-3.
