Rabah Madjer Tipped To Lead Algeria Against Nigeria

Rabah Madjer Tipped To Lead Algeria Against Nigeria

Federation of Algerian Football (FAF) are considering former Desert Foxes star Rabah Madjer to take over as national team  coach after Lucas Alcaraz was fired this week.

Lebuteur.com reported on Thursday that the former FC Porto star had emerged as the favourite to succeed the Spanish manager as  Algeria coach ahead of November 10 World Cup qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.


Another top contender for the top job is Boualem Charef.

FAF could settle for 5-July Stadium in Algiers as venue for Algeria versus Nigeria clash in November, after renovation work  around the stadium last month.

Rabah Madjer’s heroics propelled Algeria to their only AFCON win in 1990, scoring the only goal of the match against Nigeria in the final.

  • Good. A chance to pay him back for that 1990 AFCON loss (even if it’s as a coach now). More reason for Nigeria to win that game, plus the fact it will boost our FIfa rankings and help us avoid tougher teams like Spain and Brazil in the first round of Russia 2018.

    It was Oudjani and not Madjer that scored the only goal in that final.

      We are very excited about Rabah Madjer coming back to coach our National Team. We are in full support to him. At the time being, he and Saadan are the best to our team to overcome the difficult moments. I am sure that he will find a good combination between Locals and International players to raise the level of our footbal national team!! I wish for him the best luck! Nacir.
