Successful entry into the competition for the host country Algeria, which beat Libya on Friday at the opening game of the African Nations Championship (CHAN 2022).

As in the last six editions, the host country Algeria beat Libya 1-0 to open CHAN at the Nelson Mandela stadium.

After the colorful opening ceremony, the first game was played. In the first part, Algeria proved to be more dangerous but sinned in the last gesture. Both teams will return to the locker room with a goalless draw.

In the second half, the local Fennecs benefited from a penalty converted by Aymen Mahiou in the 57th minute.

Nothing more will be signaled until the final whistle of the game referee. 1-0 is the final score. Aymen Mahiou also becomes the first scorer of this 7th edition of CHAN.

With this victory, the Fennecs take the lead in group A with 3 points while we wait for the match between Ethiopia and Mozambique on Saturday. The next matches will be played between DR Congo and Uganda at 4:00 p.m. GMT and Ivory Coast vs Senegal at 6:00 p.m.
