Djamel Belmadi who is the head coach of the Algerian national team has made it clear that his wards are ready for the AFCON 2019 semifinal big clash with the Super Eagles.
Super Eagles are looking for their fourth title since winning their first on home soil at the expense of Algeria in 1980.
Algeria on the other hand are looking for their second gong since their only title win on home soil at the expense of Nigeria in 1990.
Nigeria's Super Eagles have won eight of the previous encounters while Algeria had won seven, with five drawn.
Algeria were stopped from qualifying for the 2018 World Cup as Eagles bashed the Foxes 3-1 in Uyo and tied the second leg in Constantine 1-1 before FIFA awarded the match to Algeria after the Eagles fielded ineligible defender Abdullahi Shehu.
“The one that we won was in 1990 a long time ago when it was at home. We’ve never won since. This is away from home, it’s more difficult of course.
“This is our target, we want to write our history and the players want to write their history as well. It’s not far — two more steps, but two very difficult steps to this great achievement. We will try our best,'' he explained.
