The Algeria national football team arrived Nigeria on Thursday evening on a chartered flight ahead of Saturday’s crunch FIFA World Cup Qualification tie against the Super Eagles.
The Desert Warriors, led by FAF president, Mohamed Raouraoua, were received by top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) as they arrived Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.
However, following their arrival at the Le Meridian Hotel, where they will be staying, the North Africans were reportedly seen with their own beddings, pillows, water and food.
The team alongside new coach Georges Leekens, are expected to train on Friday at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium – venue for the clash.
The Algerians were recently hit with injuries ahead of the fixture. Ryad Boudebouz is ruled out, while Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam remains a huge doubt as he continues to battle a groin problem, he however travelled with the squad.
The mouthwatering encounter is expected to kick off at 5pm local time.
