Nigeria vs Algeria: Where the game will be won and lost

Goal.com

The Fennecs’ World Cup heartbreak was perhaps even more harrowing than their West African opponents.

Djamel Belmadi’s men were beaten by a Cameroon strike deep into second-half extra-time when they thought they had forced an equaliser that saw them secure progress to Qatar.

Algeria have won all their games since, including their opening two Afcon qualifiers without conceding a goal, and will back themselves to keep that run going in Oran.

They face a Nigeria side just getting started under a new trainer, looking to take advantage of being further along in their development.

In this feature, GOAL picks out where Tuesday’s friendly will be won and lost.
