2019 AFCON: Algeria Defender Reveals ‘Fear’ Ahead Super Eagles Clash
Algeria defender Ramy Bensebaini has said that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are difficult to beat at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON ).
Both countries face off on Sunday in the second semi-final of the continent’s biggest football tournament in Egypt.
The Desert Foxes progressed to the semi-final after defeating Ivory Coast 4-3 on penalties on Thursday, while Nigeria beat South Africa 2-1 on Wednesday.
According to him, Gernot Rohr’s men are in form and have several good players, admitting that Algeria’s task to overcome the three-time African champions is daunting.
”We are in the semifinals and we do not think which opponent to face and which to avoid,” Bensebaini told Le Buteur.
”At this stage of the competition, all teams are formidable, especially when it comes to a top team like Nigeria who are having a great Africa Cup of Nations.
”It is also a team composed of several good individual players. Our task looks so difficult.”
