This game originally ended in a 1-1 draw but was overturned by FIFA and Algeria awarded a 3-0 win. Nigeria's Abdullahi Shehu played in this game even though he should have been suspended for picking up yellow cards in two previous qualifiers. The defender was cautioned in the Super Eagles 1-0 win over Zambia in October that sealed Nigeria's spot in Russia, having been shown a yellow card in the first leg of their second round tie against Swaziland in November 2015. The Nigeria Football Federation was also fined US,000 for the oversight. The sanction did not affect Nigeria's FIFA World Cup finals qualification as they had already clinched a place in Russia before the Algeria tie.
