    take anywhere you like, you shall be beaten blue and black come 14th October

  • So, the head coach (Adil Amrouche) is from Algeria and was the one that suggested Algeria as the venue to gain Home Support.

    Is it not the same coach that was bragging that he was ready to play the two legs in Nigeria as if home support was nothing to him.

    Can’t stop laughing. LOL.
