Super Eagles To Clash With Algeria In International Friendly Sept 27

Nigeria vs Algeria

September 06, (THEWILL) – On September 27, at the New Stadium in Oran, Algeria, there will be a friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Desert Warriors of Algeria.

Both countries missed out on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with Algeria losing out to Cameroon and Nigeria losing out to their archrivals, Ghana.

The Black Stars of Ghana were originally scheduled to play Algeria in the international friendly, but Ghana withdrew, forcing the Algerian football officials to opt to play the Super Eagles.

In the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final, Algeria defeated the Super Eagles 2-1 thanks to a free kick from Man City winger, Riyadh Mahrez, in the 95th minute. Then, Baghdad Bounedjah’s second-minute goal secured Algeria’s victory over Senegal in the final.

Since Algeria has consistently been a difficult opponent for the Super Eagles, the game is anticipated to be a tough test for Super Eagles manager, Jose Pesiero.
