Algeria midfielder, Adlene Guedioura, has said he is looking forward to meeting his Watford teammates turned 'enemies', Odion Ighalo and Isaac Success, when the Super Eagles host Algeria on matchday 2 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier in November in Uyo.
Guedioura featured for Algeria in their 1-1 home draw against Cameroon on Sunday.
But Ighalo, who was burying his late father, and injured Success were not in the Nigeria squad that beat Zambia 2-1 in Ndola.
However, they might return to the team when Algeria come visiting.
"I said to them I won't talk to them until next month because they are my enemies now," the 30-year-old Guedioura told watfordfc.com.
"Of course it's a joke, but it will be a pleasure to play against them. It's special to meet teammates who you are used to training with every day and to play against them in one game, so it's quite good and strange at the same time.
"It's going to be an important game for us. I'm sure we'll have a good welcome from the Nigeria people and from Ighalo and Isaac, but when we go into the pitch they're not going to be my teammates or my friends any more.
"It's going to be a tough game and I can't wait for it."
