Watch: Riyad Mahrez scores stunning 25-yard chip over ‘keeper for Algeria against Togo

Riyad Mahrez found the net twice in the opening half hour of Algeria’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo on Sunday, giving his country the lead then a 3-0 advantage over the hosts.

The first goal was lovely 25-yard chip over the wandering goalkeeper, and despite a Togo defender’s best efforts to keep the ball out with his hand, Mahrez’s shot found the net.

After Youcef Atal added a second for Algeria, Mahrez made it three latching on to a long pass and smashing the ball beyond the Togo goalkeeper, who will be having nightmares about the Manchester City winger tonight.

The 27-year-old has been in good form for City after an adaptation period with 3 goals and 4 assists in his last 6 appearances for the Premier League champions.

Watch Mahrez make it 1-0 and 3-0 to Algeria against Togo:
