Algeria manager, Djamel Belmadi has come out to hail the performance by Sierra Leone in the 0-0 draw registered at AFCON 2021. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he cannot say he is satisfied with how his players played in the opening game, and he’ll admit that Sierra Leone was brave.
Djamel added that AFCON will definitely be difficult for everyone because there are no small teams.
His words, “I can’t say that I’m satisfied, the objective being to enter the competition well with the maximum number of points, but it wasn’t possible,”
“But it’s not just the conditions, the heat, and humidity. We had a brave opponent in front who left little room. And as the game went on, he had more motivation and reduced the spaces. In the second half, it is true that we had a lot more chances but we must also salute the performance of the opponent.”
“And as I said, this Afcon, it will be difficult for everyone.”
