  • I support the sack. Algeria was one of the team that made that group tagged ‘GoD'(Group of Death). They have quality players and considering what fans are saying that the sack was overdue, they must have gotten the support of the government. So it is evident that the coach was the problem. As things are, the Eagles must be more careful. A win for Algeria will justify the sack and put a stain on our records. We should emulate the Brazilian who despite having qualified still played serious and defeated Chile even not allowing them to score even a single goal that may have qualified them.
