Team News

  • Algeria will be without Youcef Atal, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a fractured collarbone.
  • Sofiane Feghouli is a doubt after picking up an injury in the quarter-final win against Ivory Coast.
  • Djamel Belmadi may keep faith with Baghdad Bounedjah who was guilty of wasting several chances including a penalty last time out.
  • Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr could start the same line-up that overcame South Africa 2-1 in the quarter-finals.


  • Algeria reached this stage of the competition after a penalty shootout win over Ivory Coast and they are favourites to qualify for the finals for the first time since 1990. The Desert Foxes have demonstrated impressive form since their opening game, scoring 10 goals and conceding one.
  • Nigeria are in the semi-finals following a deserved 2-1 win over South Africa. They appear to have found their grove and will be boosted by the injuries Algeria have sustained to key areas of the pitch.
  • The Super Eagles have won seven of their last nine matches against Algeria. Their most recent meeting in the tournament came during a third-place playoff in 2010, which Nigeria won 1-0.
