Goal rates Taifa Stars players from the Algeria encounter

Algeria’s Baghad Bounedjah scored twice to give his side a deservedly 4-1 victory against Tanzania in their friendly match.

The game was used as preparation for both sides ahead of their 2019 AFCON qualifiers.

Shomari Kapombe's own goal and a Carl Medjan strike gave the home side a big victory while Simon Msuva pulled a goal back for Tanzania.

Here is how Goal rated Tanzania players from the encounter.

Abdulrahman Mohamed

Was his first game for Taifa Stars and it was a mixed performance. Nothing he could do for Algeria’s three goals but he did not cover himself well for the second goal. 4

Shomari Kapombe

Headed in his own net for the second goal. A number of poor clearances. Made poor deliveries too, and struggled against Sofiane Hanni and Riyad Mahrez who often seemed to switch the flanks.3

Abdi Banda

It was not a good day for the defensive line. The Republic of South Africa’s Baroka FC central defender was sloppy in possession at times and unable to deal with the skillful Algerian attackers. 4

Kelvin Yondani

A smart interception stopped Algeria’s first counter of note but still yet to fully put shaky displays behind him. 4

Gadiel Michael

He had a big task to deal with Riyad Mahrez something which he did not manage. His deliveries were not up to their usual high standards. 4

Himid Mao

His first game since his return from injury. He had more defensive work than usual with Mudathir Yahaya beside him. Tried to rally his team-mates to be more urgent. 4

Mudathir Yahaya

He had a bright start but faded as the game went on. Had one good through ball to Mbwana Samatta but his shot proved not enough. 4

Said Ndemla

He had a quiet game in his 63 minutes on the field. Eager to justify his start and buzzed around but influence faded. 3

Shiza Kichuya

He was the liveliest Tanzania player on the pitch. He assisted for Tanzania's only goal scored by Simon Msuva. Had a chance to score for himself in the second half but unfortunately his initial shot hit the side post and he followed the rebound which well saved by the goalkeeper. 5

Mbwana Samatta

He was trying to make things happen but it was not easy to pass through Algeria's organized defensive line. He had a clear chance in the first half but he wasted it. 4

Simon Msuva

The Tanzania goal scorer. His supposed weakness, his hold-up play, is becoming a strength and Tanzania’s best openings came through him. 6
