Algeria coach: My players fought well against strong Eagles

Mutiu Adepoju has expressed his desire for Nigeria to continue their unbeaten run in the World Cup qualifying when they confront Algeria at Stade Mohamed-Hamlaoui.

Having already sealed their place in Russian Federation next summer, the Eagles played against the Fennecs without pressure and got ahead in the game after John Ogu scored with a superb curler after the break.

Having qualified for the football mundial in Russian Federation, the Eagles went into the game bereft of pressure, as a loss would have made no impact in the overall scheme of things.

The home side missed two clear chances in the second half from Islam Slimani and Aissa Mandi right in front of goal, after slips by Nigeria's goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

John Ogu put Eagles in front with a super finish in the 62nd minute before a controversial penalty converted by Yacine Brahim gave the Fennecs a point in Constantine on Friday.

The group's other teams Zambia, on seven points, and Cameroon, on six points, will meet in another dead rubber encounter in Ndola on Saturday.

Up next for Aina is the global friendly game between the Super Eagles and Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia on Tuesday.
