Mahrez on target for Algeria in AFCON victory

Riyad Mahrez was on the score-sheet to help get Algeria's Africa Cup of Nations campaign off to a winning start as they beat Kenya 2-0 on Sunday night.

The City midfielder produced a captain’s display for his country in Algeria’s opening Group C clash in Cairo, Egypt, leading from the front and causing Kenya constant problems.

And Mahrez set the seal on a fine individual display by doubling the North African side's lead just before half time after an earlier 34th minute penalty by Baghdad Bounedjah had given them the lead.

Algeria’s next match is against the Senegalese on Thursday, kick-off 6pm BST.
