Algeria coach Georges Leekens  claims the Desert Foxes  were robbed by Gambian referee Bakary Gassama  against  the Super Eagles in their Russia 2018 World Cup Group B qualifier in Uyo on Saturday.

Chelsea right wing-back Victor Moses struck a brace as Nigeria  beat Algeria 3-1  to pick up their second  win in the  World Cup qualifiers and open up a four-point lead at the top of the table – after Cameroon were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Zambia in the group’s other fixture.

The North Africans, who have just a point after two games, are left with a mountain to climb to keep alive their chances of qualifying for the World Cup for the  fifth  time, having played in the tournament in 1982, 1986, 2010 and 2014.
