Jamel Belmadi Wanting a big win over Niger, he got it. On the pitch where Mustafa Chacker Stadium is still bad, his players reacted on the field, suffering a heavy defeat to Niger (6 – 1).
Match with Algerian Ogre and modest ones Nigerians Is almost bent forward due to an imbalance of forces. With an arsenal of players playing for the big clubs in Europe, the Greens have no problem extending their stunning unbeaten streak to 31 games and continuing to top Group A.
With a slightly changed team in the kickoff, Algeria struggled to impose its game and create scoring opportunities. On a lawn that does not facilitate the movement of the ball, the Greens did not force the pedal to bring danger into the opponent’s territory.
Oddly enough, Belmadi withdrew his usual strategy of choking the opponent and scoring goals. This may have been one of the lessons he learned from the previous match with Burkina Faso, where after a good first half, the Greens did not exist in the second half, which allowed the Stallions to return to the score.
