Algerian captain Adlene Guedioura is confident that the team will qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia despite being drawn against Nigeria, Cameroon and Zambia in the final qualifying round, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The 30-year-old midfielder is however well aware of the danger posed to his country's ambition by his Watford teammates, Nigerian Odion Ighalo and Cameroonian Allan Nyom, admitting that the group is a tough one.

"What a difficult group with fellows Odion Ighalo, Allan Nyom and Sebastian Bassong," Guedioura wrote on Instagram following Friday'sdraw. "Insha Allah we will qualify."
The Super Eagles will host Algeria on matchday 3 on 7 November while the reverse fixture is on the last day in Algeria on 6 November, 2017.
Nigeria picked their first-ever World Cup ticket with a draw in Algeria in 1993 after they held the Fennecs to 1-1 draw.

Guedioura has scored twice in 32 international appearances for Algeria since making his debut in 2010.

    Honestly, not putting anyone down, I don't see Ighalo as our long term #9 "mesiah" not at all.The guy switches on and off and on his good day even, he is just an average joe. He reminds me of Benedict Akwuegbu and Jonathan Akpoborie. Very successful guys at club levels, but never clicked for the Super Eagles.I wish we can afford a good coach that believes in youth or a mixture of youth and experience. The SE hope for a clinical  front for now and the future are: Osime, Ihanacho, Iwobi, Amed Musa. I always wish Musa particularly will have the opportunity to play under a great coach who will turn him into a #9, like Wenger turned Henry fron a winger to a top stricker. If you remember his two goals in Brazil 2014 against Argentina, then you will understand what I mean.Back to the issue of a foreign coach, the SE need a sound foreign coach. Else they will be like England.If we are willing to state the obvious, a better coach would have beaten Egypt in Nigeria and got a draw away with the same players but with a different selection and formation.The SE team that played Luxermburg and Mali would have beaten Egypt in Kaduna and fought for a draw in Cairo.Let us go for a sound French or Dutch coach now with Siasia as assistant.Send Amunike and and some younger ones for internship at Bacca, Real Madrid, Chelsea, MC and United, for two years. Even Siasia should go for internship when SE has no assignment on hand. If you dont upgrade your skills, you degrade and become obsolate.
