Algeria and Romania met in a hotly contested pre-World Cup friendly at the Stade de Geneve in Lancy, Switzerland, and the North Africans picked up a 2-1 win Wednesday.

The Desert Foxes emerged as victors in a match that was largely disrupted by the fans’ behaviour. Bottles and flares were thrown onto the pitch, while there were even a number of turf intruders at one point.

Algeria looked lively in front of a crowd of 15,600, despite fielding a side largely different from the one that beat Armenia earlier in the week.

Tottenham Hotspur's Nabil Bentaleb opened the scoring before El Arbi Hillel Soudani found the winner in the 66th minute. The goals came either side of a 28th-minute leveller from Alexandru Chipciu.

Read on to discover six things we learned about Vahid Halilhodzic’s side as they head toward Brazil.
