The way we started gave Algeria space to play. They were very careful in the first half and defended well. They kept four players behind. Also, we couldn’t score from the chances that we created in the first half. The goal they scored came out of nothing. The first game is finished and we will now think of the next match, against Nigeria on Wednesday.
I’m satisfied with the result. We played well and managed to get the equalizer. We had some good moments to score despite the game being very close. The attention is now on Mali and our approach is match-after-match.
