Nigeria team coordinator Patrick Pascal has stressed that the Nigerian team have forgotten about their loss to Algeria and are fully focused on their Africa Cup of Nations third-fourth-place playoff against Tunisia.

The Super Eagles will go into October 9 friendly against Algeria with the sole aim of ending the Desert Foxes’ 18 match -unbeaten streak.

The North Africans last defeat came almost two years ago, a 1-0 loss to the Squirrels of Benin in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Since then, the Desert Foxes have won 13 and drawn 5 matches.


Djamel Belmadi’s side recorded wins against top sides like Senegal, Nigeria, Tunisia, Mali and Colombia during the period.

The game will be first time the Super Eagles and Algeria will be meeting in a friendly.

It will be a repeat of the 2019 AFCON semi-final which Algeria won 2-1 courtesy of Riyad Mahrez late free kick.

Both countries have faced each other 21 times in official match at senior level.
