[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Algeria, once an African power but on decline for two decades, is staging a comeback in World Cup 2010 qualifying. Its 3-2 win over powerhouse Senegal before 45,000 fans in Blida on Friday moved it into first place in Africa's Group 6 with nine points, one better than the Senegalese and four better than Gambia.

Yacine Bezzaz, Rafik Saifi and Anthar Yahia scored for the Desert Foxes. Colorado Rapids keeper Bouna Coundoul was on the bench for Senegal.

In Friday's other qualifiers, Libya upset Ghana, 1-0, to open a three-point lead over the Black Stars at the top of Group 5. (Ghana's Chelsea star, Michael Essien was injured in the game.) Malawi moved into a share of the lead in Group 12 with a 3-0 win at Djibouti.
