Algeria head coach, Djamel Belmadi says he will play his strongest side in the team’s next friendly against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, reports Pnosports.com.
Belmadi started a number of key stars including captain, Riyad Mahrez on the bench in Friday night’s 1-0 slim win against the Syli Stars of Guinea.
The likes of Nabil Bentaleb, Andy Derlot and Zegha struggled to make impact in the game.
Mahrez set up veteran striker, Islam Slimani for the winning goal 12 minutes from time.
The two-time African champions will now shift attention to Tuesday’s clash against Nigeria at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran.
Belmadi insisted that he will field his regular stars against the Super Eagles.
“We took a lot of positives from the Guinea game, but Nigeria is a different game,” Belmadi told reporters after the game against Guinea.
“I will play with players who are used to playing with each other.”
