Nigeria/Algeria: Super Eagles Change Training Ground As They Prepare for Algeria

Algeria boss Djamel Belmadi said his players are "two very hard steps" away from writing history as they prepare to face Nigeria in Sunday's Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals.

The Eagles beat stubborn South Africa 2-1 in Wednesday's quarterfinal match which saw Bafana Bafana threaten to push the game into extra time before William Troost-Ekong saved Nigeria with a late victor.

"We can forget about the defeat to Madagascar now because we are through to the semi-final".

In that game, Nigeria was allegedly denied two well-taken goals but the 1-1 scoreline at the end of that match was enough to seal the Eagles' qualification for Afcon 2019 even with a game to spare.

"We had two changes before South Africa and it's possible we might change again".

Nigeria and Algeria will clash for the 21st time at senior men's level on Sunday night in an AFCON 2019 semi-final encounter that promises lots of fireworks.

Nigeria will play their 14th semi-final in AFCON, more than any other team.

"The win is important".

"We know it's not going to be easy, they've got quality players but so do we".

"The match against Algeria is going to be a very tough one for the Super Eagles but if they will sustain the tempo, I believe they will come out victorious".

"We expected that we would win, but we have to keep our head calm", he added. "They've been more impressive than us on the whole so far".

Super Eagles media officer Toyin Ibitoye however told reporters in Egypt that these three players are now good to go against Algeria.

"We also see Egyptian fans support us and encourage us to perform better so it is a great feeling when they saw them supporting us". If you want to win a championship like the AFCON, you must have the fighting spirit of a victor.

He advised the technical crew to also intensify team training in penalties as the semi final and final matches might stretch to extra time.
