International Friendly: Algeria 3 Armenia 1

The Armenian national team lost 1-3 to Algeria in a friendly held in Syon, Switzerland.

All of Algeria’s goals came in the first half, defender Essaid Belkalem putting them in front early with a scrappy close-range finish.

Nabil Ghilas then doubled the advantage before Islam Slimani effectively made sure of victory with Algeria’s third.

Armenia, 33rd in the FIFA rankings compared to Algeria’s 25, pulled one back within a minute of the re-start when halftime substitute Artur Sarkisov burst clear and beat Mohamed Lamine Zemmamouche with a low shot.
