A late minute spot kick was all Algeria needed to rescue a point against Nigeria in the final group game of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup qualifier in Constantine on Friday.

John Ogu, with a wonder strike, gave Nigeria the lead in the 62nd minute, before Algeria pulled level late from the penalty spot.
