Algeria Vs Nigeria – U23 African Cup of Nations, Senegal 2015

Match 3
Algeria Vs Nigeria
Venue: Stade Leopold Sedar Senghor Dakar
Date: December 5, 2015
Time: 15:00

Nigeria football fans will be on the edge of their seats on Saturday, December 5, as they watch the Dream team struggle to qualify from their final Group B match against Algeria in the on-going U23 African Cup of Nation in Senegal.

The way Samson Siasia tutored boys gas-out of breath at the middle of their last two matches that saw the team narrowly  edged out Mali, but again threw away 3 – 0 lead against Egypt that would have  secured them the Semi-final ticket; cause most fans to worry.

What Algeria might do is to soak in the Dream team pressure for the first 30 minutes or so, then come out in full force, after the Nigerian side might  have gas-out again.

Siasia must find a different way of approaching this final Group game to ensure Nigeria at least gets a draw to move on.

Algeria drew against Egypt 1 – 1 and beat Mali 2 – 0. So both Nigeria and Algeria only need a draw to qualify for the Semi Finals.

But one thing is certain; Egypt will come out smoking against Mali to ensure they win that one to stand a chance to qualify. Mali has been knocked out already, but may only be playing for pride against Egypt.

Remember, the first three teams in the tournament will automatically qualify for Rio Olympics games Men Soccer in 2016. There’s no negotiations, Nigeria must be there or…?
