Algeria forward Andy Delort  insisted that the Desert Foxes are battle ready for the friendly against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, reports

Djamel Belmadi’s side  are looking to extend their recent unbeaten run to five matches with a win against the Super Eagles in Oran tonight. 

Algeria beat Nigeria 2-1 in the semi-final of AFCON 2019 in Cairo and won again 1-0 in an international friendly match in Austria on October 9 2020.

The 30-year-old reckoned  that the Super Eagles are a solid side but insisted he and his teammates will do all they can to emerge victorious. 

“We will face Nigeria who are a solid opponent. So it will be a good test for both teams. That said, as it is a home game, we will do everything to win it,” Delort told Algerie Presse Service.

“We have also prepared it well. We worked well after the previous match against Guinea. We analysed the game with the technical staff to see what worked and what didn’t to perform better in the second friendly match.”
