Nigeria would face a stern test when they take on Algeria, especially now with the reinforcement of more supporters.
Speaking of a country that understands the value of "Fans support”, Algeria is looking to deliver 1,400 extra fans from Algeria to Egypt through 10 Algerian air crafts deployed from their military. They desperately search for their first Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy in the last 29 years.
Algeria faces the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the semifinals at exactly 8 pm Nigerian time on Sunday. Nigeria beat Bafana Bafana of South Africa by 2-1, thanks to two beautiful goals from Samuel Chukwueze and Troost Ekong.
If Algeria defeats Nigeria, they will still have the big matter of Tunisia or Senegal to contend with in the final and the desert foxes are keen on bringing 600 extra fans should they get to the final.
2019 AFCON was hosted by Egypt, as well as Algeria. Egypt is a North African country. Since Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah failed to lead the Egyptians to glory, rumours have it they would strongly be backing their territorial neighbours for the title. So can the Super Eagles defeat the Foxes when North Africa unites against them? Can the footfballers stop the Algerian firepower.
Recall the Algerians have the likes of Manchester City winger, Mahrez, and Porto's midfielder, Brahimini. Also the forward tagged as the 'dragon slayer', Silmani. Sunday evening, July 14, has all the answers.
