Algeria charter planes to carry fans for African Cup semi-final

Breaking Algeria qualify for AFCON 2019 semi-finals

Algeria beat Guinea 3-0 in the last 16 before edging past Ivory Coast in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in the quarter-finals.

The Desert Warriors have demonstrated signs of impressive resurgence in this tournament following a hard couple of years during which they were knocked out in the group stages of the 2017 tournament and failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

In total, Nigeria and Algeria have faced off six times.

NAN also reports that at the ongoing 32nd AFCON, the Desert Foxes have emerged as perhaps the best organised team, tactically aware and disciplined in their approach, with swift counter-attacking competence.

The duo and Francis Uzoho are the only Super Eagles players yet to play in the tournament despite Rohr's rotation strategy.

Super Eagles on the other hand, will consider reaching the semi-final to be a bare minimum requirement given their incredible heritage in AFCON by reaching the last four on seven occasions since 2000.

"Even though we were able to win two games in the group stage, it wasn't the greatest performance but sometimes you know you don't have to play well to win games".

Nigeria and Algeria were in the same qualification group for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. We are going to do our best to make Nigerians happy.

Meanwhile, Senegal star Sadio Mane says helping Liverpool win the Champions League was special, but his "absolute dream" is parading the Africa Cup of Nations trophy through the streets of Dakar.

"If we manage to achieve success here, we will go down in history".

NFF's Official Optimum Partner, AITEO, also weighed in with $75,000, being $25,000 for each of the three goals scored by the team against the Indomitable Lions.

The west African team known as the Teranga Lions are two victories away from fulfilling the dream of their 27-year-old talisman, starting with a semi-final against Tunisia in Egypt Sunday.

"For long time now I've been dreaming of winning this very important title with my team".
