Algeria world cup 2014


A five man delegation from Algeria will arrive Nigeria next week to inspect facilities in Uyo ahead of the Russia
2018 World Cup qualifying game between Nigeria and Algeria come November 12th 2016.

The delegation will be received in Lagos by the Nigeria Football Federation Vice-President Sheyi Akinwunmi from
where they will fly to Uyo to see the stadium, training pitch and hotels as well as make transport arrangements for
their fans and contingent. The delegation will be in Nigeria from October 12- to October 15.

Earlier this year, Egypt also did the same arrangement and ran away with a draw against the Eagles in Kaduna.

Meanwhile, the Algerian team proper will land in Uyo on November 10 for their crucial Russia 2018 World Cup
qualifying fixture against Nigeria.

The players and their officials will travel aboard Air Algeria flight from Algiers for the game.

An advance party of top officials of the Federation of Algeria Football are however expected to visit the country
earlier to sort out hotel accomdation and other logistics before the arrival of the main delegation.

The game will be played on November 12 at Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

The Desert Foxes started their campaign with a disappointing 1-1 home draw against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon
last Sunday.

A players revolt led to the resignation of Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac on Tuesday and the FAF are looking to
appoint a substantive coach before the match.
