Algeria began the defence of their Africa Cup of Nations title with a goalless draw against Sierra Leone in Group E.
The Leone Stars had the better first-half openings, with Alhaji Kamara sending two chances narrowly wide.
After the break Algeria forward Yacine Brahimi shot straight at keeper Mohamed Nbalie Kamara, who also tipped a low shot from Riyad Mahrez past the post.
Nbalie Kamara denied Ramy Bensebaini and Baghdad Bounedjah in stoppage time.
