Algeria did not drag. By winning against Niger (1-0), this Monday, his fourth victory in as many matches in the framework of the qualifications for the CAN, the selection of Djamel Belmadi won his ticket for the competition. And this, for the 20th time in its history. The only goal of the game was scored by Baghdad Bounedjah after just 6 minutes of play. Enough to secure one of the first two places in Group F.
The Fennecs will try to do better than during the last edition during which they were eliminated in the group stage without having won a single match. They join two other qualifiers: Côte d’Ivoire, host country, and Morocco. The tournament will take place in January 2024.
