In the second half both teams went in search of the winning goal but couldn't break each other down.

With the draw, both Algeria and Cameroon have a point each and are behind leaders the Super Eagles of Nigeria while Zambia are bottom in the group.

Algeria will be guests of the Super Eagles on matchday 2 in November and Cameroon will be at home to Zambia also in November.

Meanwhile, Tunisia got their 2018 World Cup qualifier off to a flying start following their 2-0 home win against visiting Sylla Stars of Guinea in Group A on Sunday.

After a goalless first half, Tunisia finally broke the deadlock in the 58th minute through Aymen Abdennour.

In the 80th minute, Ahmed Akaichi got on the score sheet to make it 2-0 in favour of the Carthage Eagles.

Tunisia are now second in Group A behind Democratic Republic of Congo who thumped Libya 4-0 in Saturday's qualifying game.

In the next round of qualifiers in November 2016, Tunisia will be guests to Libya while Guinea will host DR Congo.
