Algeria triumphs 3-2 against Bolivia in FIFA series debut under new coach

Algeria triumphed 3-2 against Bolivia in a FIFA Series match held at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Algiers. This victory held significance as it marked Algeria’s first home match since their disappointing exit from the Africa Cup of Nations and also served as the debut game for their new coach, Vladimir Petkovic.

The game witnessed a thrilling display of football as Algeria initially took the lead through Amine Gouiri’s goal before Bolivia swiftly equalized and then took the lead themselves.

However, Algeria showcased resilience and determination, staging a comeback with goals from Yacine Benzia and Aïssa Mandi to clinch the win.

This match wasn’t just a typical friendly but was part of FIFA’s new competition, the FIFA Series, designed to aid lower-ranked teams in better preparing for potential future World Cup participation.

Overall, the victory not only provided a positive start for Algeria under their new coach but also demonstrated their ability to bounce back from setbacks on the international stage.
