Algeria coach, Belmadi promises stronger team against Super Eagles
Djamel Belmadi, the head coach of the Algerian Desert Foxes, has promised to start his best players when his team faces the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their upcoming friendly.
Several of Belmadi's key players, including captain Riyad Mahrez, started Friday night's tight 1-0 victory over the Syli Stars of Guinea on the bench.
Nabil Bentaleb, Andy Derlot, and Moustapha Zegha, for example, had trouble having an impact on the game.
Mahrez set up veteran striker Islam Slimani for the winning goal 12 minutes from time.
The two-time African champions will now shift attention to Tuesday’s clash against Nigeria at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran.
Belmadi stated that he will field his regular stars against the Super Eagles.
“We took a lot of positives from the Guinea game, but Nigeria is a different game."
“I will play with players who are used to playing with each other,” Belmadi told reporters after the clash against Guinea.
