The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations continues with a last 16 clash between Algeria and Guinea.
The biggest challenge for Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi is deflecting all the praise coming the way of him and his Desert Foxes and concentrating on a match against Guinea in Cairo.
Algeria won all three group games, scoring six goals without conceding, and were able to field a reserve side and still outclass Tanzania 3-0 having already qualified.
Midfielders Riyad Mahrez from Premier League champions Manchester City and Ismael Bennacer were included in the official group-phase team and Belmadi was named best coach.
Former Manchester City midfielder Belmadi is uncomfortable with individuals being singled out, stressing: “Football is a team sport.”
