Sofian Feghouli, an Algerian international from Galatasaray, was quoted in AFP columns as saying that the national team’s favorite would be the final coronation of Cameroon as defending champions..
⁇We are favorites … but we are always surprised. Once on the field, you have to deliver your best. We hide, we want to keep the title intact. This is a very high level, which will last for years. Today, we are the team to beat, and we will try to keep it going. The goal is to win again in Cameroonఘ, Feghouli points out in an interview with the AFP (French equivalent of Agence France Press, APS).
When asked about the pressure on this type of tournament, especially on the Algerian team that won the last edition in Egypt, the former Valencia player explained: “All the time right now. Among us, we try not to rest, it is our good fortune to have an exceptional coach on the national team, who has the words, who knows how to play the competition and give everyone a chance. We have a group that wants to move forward and never rest, as evidenced by the series of matches without defeat. It proves the quality of our work, not only our talent, but also the dedication of this team..
Sofiane Feghouli recently returned to the Greens after taking the rest of the time she needed to recover from her injury. He is now working on his first game against Sierra Leone, though he is not ready to play the whole match.
