The Super Eagles of Nigeria’s opponents at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations was confirmed as the Desert Warrior of Algeria yesterday night after the North African side defeated Cote D’ Ivoire on penalties following a stalemate in normal time.
Algeria boasts of a formidable attacking line up led by Manchester City winger, Ryan Mahrez.
The North American side is also physical in their display and is equally strong defensively.
The crunch clash between the two sides would take place at the Cairo international stadium on Sunday, 8pm, Nigerian time.
As much as Super Eagle’s fans home and abroad long for victory to proceed to final round, It’s wise to understand that the game won’t be a walk over.
