Excellent game for Soudani with 2 goals, a constant threat for the opposing defenders .. Djebbour useless as usual, Slimani did more in the 35 minutes that he played, setting up Soudani on one play (volley into the stands), almost scoring (cleared off the line by a defender) and finally scoring
Totally agree, i'm a huuuuge fan of Soudani because he plays with heart and is very strong .. I'm sooo glad he took his chances and proved to be the striker that Algeria was always looking for. As for Slimani, that's a fairytale in itself, to be playing outside the scope of professionals just a couple of years ago and then get called to the National Team and score on your debut game is nothing but that.
Everyone played well (except Djebbour like you said) and what's surprising is that the local players are right up there when it comes to being players of the match. From Hachoud to Slimani to Soudani (who I consider a local because he's a 100% local product) well done... let's take the game to Mali now.
One thing that i'm wondering is who would Bougherra replace out of the two center backs? I was satisfied with both of their performances, Bouzid more than Medjani but I guess it will come down to who Hlilou likes more.
Oh and our new jerseys look awesome!!
For those that wanna watch the goals with arabic commentators:
