2111: Marseille's Taye Taiwo hits a tame free kick wide of the Algerian goal as Strasbourg striker Salim Arrache comes on for Algeria.

2109: Obafemi Martins dribbles past a defender rather than pass the ball square and he has a crack at goal but is denied by the outstretched legs of Algerian 'keeper Mezair.
