Sweden got the better of Mexico in the mid-week as Marcus Rohden and Mattias Svanberg struck either side of an equalizer from Alexis Vega. The result ended Blue and Yellow’s five game winless run. The Scandinavian nation did not have a great Nations League campaign as they were relegated to League C following a bottom-place finish in League B Group 4. Sweden’s last competitive game was in September which ended in a 1-1 draw against Slovenia. Now the Nordic nation will turn their attention towards the Euro 2024 qualifying, which will begin in March. Sweden are drawn in Group F alongside Estonia, Belgium, Azerbaijan and Austria. 

Algeria, on the other hand, are undefeated since losing 2-1 to Cameroon in the second leg of the third round of World Cup qualifying in March. Meanwhile, the Dessert Warriors were forced to settle for a draw against Mali on Wednesday. Riyad Mahrez tucked home a penalty on the stroke of half-time before Massadio Haidara responded for Mali on the 58th-minute mark, ending Algeria’s five game winning streak. After the friendly against the European outfit, Djamel Belmadi’s side would turn their attention towards the African Nations Championships in January.
