Algeria coach wary of Super Eagles ahead of 2018 World Cup qualifier
Head coach of Algeria, Milovan Rajevac, has admitted that Nigeria will be a difficult opponent, ahead of their 2018 World Cup qualifying game next month.
Rajevac was disappointed after the Desert Foxes, could only manage a 1-1 draw against Cameroon at the Stade Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Blida.
Hilal Soudani gave Algeria the lead, before Benjamin Moukandjo levelled the game in the 24th minute.
“We played to win – all the players did their best to achieve the target. We are upset with this result as we failed to win over Cameroon in the beginning of the qualifiers,” Rajevac told the media.
“If we replayed the game again I would make some changes in the starting lineup. I have to watch the game again to understand the reason for our dip in form after leading.”
Rajevac’s men take on the Super Eagles in their next Group B encounter in Uyo. Gernot Rohr’s lead the group, after defeating Zambia 2-1 in Ndola.
“We will try to call-up the applicable squad for the Nigeria game, who are leading the group. We will face a difficult opponent in Nigeria. We will make use of Cameroon’s draw and work not to repeat our mistakes in the coming games,” he added.
