Mohamed Raouraoua, the president of Algeria’s Football Federation, has urged the national team to claim a win away to Nigeria in their 2018 World Cup qualifier.
The Super Eagles will host the Fennec Foxes in Uyo on Saturday evening for their second group stage clash.
Following a draw at home to Cameroon in their opener, Algeria need a good result in West Africa to keep in touch with leaders Nigeria.
“You have a duty to come back with a positive result from the match against Nigeria. It is mandatory. We must win there,” Raouraoua told the players on Monday, as quoted by Le Buteur.
"All the Algerian people are behind you. They support you and hope for a good result in Nigeria. We must not disappoint, it's all I can say,” added the Algerian FF president.
“The World Cup is an important event that should not be missed. You should know that everyone is behind you.”
