    “Algeria, who qualify for the World Cup finals for the first time in twenty-eight years”

    24 actually, although they may as well not have bothered attending in 1986, as they did nothing there.

    A game that virtually defined the concept of “awful match, incredible event”. In terms of football it was really really poor. But what an atmosphere and what and incredible spectacle. Congrats to Algeria (and in particular from my perspective Madjid Bougherra, one of my favourite players of recent years)

    Yes there was too much tension on this game, first one in cairo, the egyptians must honestly ask themselves on what did truly happened, but they wouldn’t and kept quiet on the ATTACK the algerian players experienced, if not it was to distract and intimidate these players, whom clearly you saw injured and looked so out of place but still played though!!! Ok there was an overreaction from some supporters, now compare the egyptian reaction after losing, their media and supporters have completely lost the plot, they are the bigger nation after all, listening to some of their journalists-actors-singers-film makers and this people consider themlselves intelctuals and contributing so much on the CULTURAL ARENA just make you want to vomit portraying patriotic slogan calling algerians barbarians ill educated…..and the list does not stop there, how poor this is, I even listened to the son of husni moubarek who clearly and utterly denies anything happening to the algerian players in egypt, ooooh spooky the algerian players injured themselves, WAKE-UP people and stop insulting each other and always remember that THE TRUTH SHALL AND WILL PREVAIL

    It was a world class and spectacular goal!!
    The Algerian team is going to be watched closely in WC 2010.
    Of course,depending on what group they’ll be,they’ll be very hard to beat.

    […] Match Of The Midweek: Algeria 1-0 Egypt “It’s a rivalry that goes back decades. Some say that it’s political, whilst others point at matches from the past that have inflamed sensibilities in a world that seems to consider the art of taking offence to be the next step in the evolutionary chain. Both sides of the divide sees the other as being the absolute opposite without ever seeming to take the similarities between their two nations into account. Football is truly a global game in the twenty-first century, and Algeria versus Egypt has become one of the international games Battle Royales.” (twohundredpercent) […]
