AFCON: Rohr wary of much improved Algeria

AFCON: Rohr wary of much improved Algeria

Omeruo also revealed at the pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday's game that there's been a real buzz around the Eagles camp since they reached the semi-final and even more so once they found out who they would be facing.

Adam Ounas, however, must have other ideas, he has three goals and one assist in only 121 minutes and the Super Eagles should be wary of the Napoli man. Mahrez is also risky as ever for Algeria having already netted two goals, he and striker Bounedjah would hope to get at Nigeria as much as possible with Islam Slimani also on the bench.

"We have to play together, stick together and keep fighting".

"However, with the absence of the injured Ounas and Atal, I am hopeful that this could be an advantage for the Eagles who have a fully fit squad heading into this encounter".

"Now I see a solid Algeria side with a good balance between attack and defence. We will try our best".

Oil baron, Otedola has recently been involved in a number of commendable interventions for ailing former Nigerian global players, including 1980 AFCON winning team's captain, Christian Chukwuemeka Chukwu and goalkeeper Peter Fregene.

"We have a team of warriors and we must seize our chance to win this tournament", said Algeria captain Riyad Mahrez.

"If we manage to achieve success here, we will go down in history".

It became as soon as, as President Trump promised, a colossal and thrilling day on the White Dwelling for Social Media. That includes O'Keefe and Project Veritas whose secretly recorded video of Google drew Trump's praise on Thursday.


They have also beaten Africa's number one -ranked team Senegal, Guinea and Cote d'Ivoire among others in the process of making it to this stage.

If they win the tournament, each player will make $20 000, making it a total of $110,000.

On his part, Coach Gernot Rohr says defeat by Madagascar has rudely awakened his Eagles to the approach they must adopt to win each game by not under-rating any team.

The 40-year-old FIFA badge referee is widely regarded as one of the best referees on the continent and was among the few Africans selected for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Rohr believes the same will be deployed against the Foxes on Sunday night.

Sunday's fixture will clearly be about qualification to AFCON 2019 final and not for anything else.

Egypt have been in support of the Super Eagles since they crashed out earlier in the championship and Iwobi has this to say: "They are insane with the team".
