#AFCON2017 LIVE UPDATES: Zimbabwe v Algeria

Zimbabwe take to the field at the Africa Cup of Nations against the highly ranked and tournament favourites Algeria as the only side from Southern Africa.

Having been absent from the continental showcase they will be keen to impress. With one of the most talented forward lines since independence they will feel optimistic against a side led by Glo African Player of the Year Award 2016 winner Riyad Mahrez.
