AFCON 2021: Title holders Algeria fly in 1,500 fans to help avoid Ghana-like exit

Published on: 19 January 2022

Algeria have flown in 1,500 fans to galvanize the team to avoid a Ghana-like exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The additional fans are expected to offer support to the Desert Foxes ahead of their Group F decider against Cote D'voire in Doula on Wednesday.

Djamel Belmadi's team, who have just a point from two games must beat two-time winners Cote D'voire to stand any chance of qualifying to the knockout stage.

The arrival of the fans will serve as a booster to the Algerian team, whose 35 unbeaten run came down crushing after losing 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea.

Algerian fans are noted for traveling across Africa in their numbers and could provide the impetus needed for this make-or-break tie.

The Desert Foxes battle the Elephants in Japoma while Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone meet in the other group F match with the match expected to be played simultaneously.
