The Lyon striker made history as the Desert Foxes stretched their unbeaten run across all competitions by grabbing three points on Friday

Islam Slimani has become Algeria's all-time top scorer with 38 goals after scoring a brace in their 6-1 thrashing of Niger in a Fifa 2022 World Cup qualifying fixture. 

Slimani overtook Abdelhafid Tasfaout who held the record previously with 36 goals, after replacing Baghdad Bounedjah in the 67th minute and he went on to score two late goals. 

Manchester City forward Riyad Mahrez put Djamel Belmadi's men in front with his well-taken free-kick in the 27th minute and Sofiane Feghouli doubled the lead, two minutes into the second half.
