For the first time this year, the Super Eagles will be in action when they take on Algeria in an international friendly on Friday.

COVID-19 has significantly affected football in 2020 and Gernot Rohr’s plans for the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualification series.

But the game against the Desert Foxes ensures that you hit the refresh button.

What Should We Expect?

“For the first time together for the team after a year away due to COVID, Rohr is under immense pressure to deliver and continue the good form from last year and show that he deserved the new contract.

“The new players will face the strong team of Algeria and Tunisia in an important test and will prove themselves in the absence of Ndidi, Etebo, Osimhen and Aribo,” the BBC’s Oluwashina Okeleji tells DAILY POST.

Which players should we be looking at?

“I’d like to see how some of the new ones can get started. Players like Akpoguma and Dessers: I hope they have good opportunities to play.

“I’ll also keep an eye out for the more regular faces like Chukwueze, Iheanacho, Ajayi, etc. They are important to whatever Rohr is building,” says Deji Faremi of BusyBuddies.

However, Solace Chukwu, reporting on Goal’s Nigerian and African players, doesn’t expect it to be an easy match.

“I hope that Algeria will dominate the game, with the injuries that the Super Eagles have in midfield.

“Algeria has a more established team, and that should serve them well,” Chukwu said.
