Eagles to play Algeria in Blida


Algeria have moved next month’s World Cup qualifier against Nigeria back to the city of Blida as they aim to salvage some national pride in the dead rubber game. The match will be played on November 10.


The North Africans lost 0 -1 to Zambia in Constantine in September, after they were forced to a 1-1 draw in their opening World Cup qualifier in October 2016.


Group B bottom team, Algeria’s only point from the qualifiers was therefore achieved in Blida.


Report say Rabah Madjer would be announced as new coach in the coming days and he is expected to make some drastic changes in his fourth spell in charge of the team.


Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr had hinted he hopes to line up his strongest team against Algeria even though Nigeria have already qualified for Russia 2018.


Rohr said he wants to finish the qualifying campaign unbeaten and will rather parade an experimental team in a friendly after the match against Algeria
