The Algerian national team stumbled today, Tuesday, at the beginning of its campaign to defend its title in the African Nations Cup, and a goalless draw with Sierra Leone, in a match that witnessed the equation of the "Desert Warriors" for a number registered in the name of Spain and Brazil.

The players of the Algerian national team appeared with a pale face in the first half of the match that took place in the Cameroonian city of Douala, and they did not succeed in creating dangerous opportunities for the Sierra Leone team, which is classified as the weakest team in the group that also includes Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea.

The performance of the team led by Djamel Belmadi improved during the second half, but the players were fortunate in light of the brilliance of the Sierra Leone team's defense, which dealt well with the stages of the confrontation.

Each team got one point at the start of Group E matches, awaiting the other confrontation that will bring together Cote d'Ivoire and Guinea, tomorrow, Wednesday.

Despite the stumble, the Algerian team managed to maintain its series of consecutive matches without losing, and reached the 35th match in a row, equaling the achievement of Spain and Brazil, and continues to chase the record recorded in the name of Italy (37 matches).
