The Algerian African champions will try to exceed the African record of invincibility held by Côte d’Ivoire, this Friday, against Tunisia.
Unbeaten since November 18, 2018, Riyad Mahrez’s teammates have chained 26 games without defeat and won a Africa Cup of Nations in 2019 in Egypt. Having decided to play against African teams, during the international break in June, in order to prepare for the qualifiers for the World Cup 2022, Djamel Belmadi, the coach of the Algeria team has won his bet so far.
The Fennecs won in the first two games against the Mauritania (4-1) and Mali (1-0) at home before going for a 27e match without defeat, this Friday at 9:30 p.m. at the Hamadi Agrebi stadium in Tunis, against the Eagles of Carthage. ” I know this Tunisian team, they know we know them. It’s a team that has a lot of experience, with players who are used to Africa and who know how to manage matches., confided Djamel Belmadi, Thursday, before the departure for Tunis. These friendly meetings are far from being without stake for me, since they will be decisive for the next ranking of Fifa. “
