Five goals ... yes, but in the Egyptian nets!
Algiers- the national team players , mostly expressed their disappointment after the provocative statements by the Egyptian captain Ahmed Hassan in his interview with the daily Ennahar, who had promised to defeat the greens with five goals on 14 November in Cairo during the last round of qualifying for the World Cup in South Africa.
- The response of the « fennecs » will be on the Field of the stadium of Cairo the day "J" and not on the pages of newspapers.
Bougherara: the current team is different from that of 2001 and we are able beat the Pharaohs in Cairo.
For the former goalkeeper of the national team, Liamine Bougherara, the declarations of Ahmed Hassan are specific to Egyptians in order to annoy and distract the Algerian players. This remains their only means to exert pressure on us after losing much of their chances to qualify for the World Cup.
- For the former coach of the MOC football club of Constantine, a score of five goals is equivalent to a dream that can never come true, mainly that our national team has been very strong in defense and the players have extensive experience in comparison to those of the year 2001.
- At the match of 2001, according to Bougherara, the Algerian team was disorganized. Belbey, for example, played then for the first time in defense and as well as Mamouni who wasn’t in his original post, before Belbey was changed in the last minute on right-back with the exit of Rahou. There is no need to compare the two teams. According to Bougherara, the greens being very strong on the outside, the pressure is rather on the Egyptians. Bougherara seems convinced that the players of Saâdane will be able to create a successful exploits in Cairo.
Commenting Ahmed Hassan, Bougherara advised him first to win before the Zambian team and then talk about the match against Algeria.

Amer Bouazza to Ennahar: Who is this player who dares to assess the level of the Algerian national team and dares to dream of such a score of five goals to nil.
The international striker Amer Bouazza who plays for the English club of Blackpool promises the Egyptian captain Ahmed Hassan a surprise of a large-caliber in the stadium of Cairo next November 14. The national team consists of an armada of great players who operate in great European clubs and beating them with such a score is a difficult dream to achieve. The Egyptians have the right to dream during this period before the meeting. The response of the fennecs will be the day "J" on the field of the pharaohs. "I do not know much about this player but I find strange such a comment from him, especially since he is the captain of Egypt."
"Ahmed Hassan has no right to evaluate us. He should rather concentrate on the next match against the Zambian selection. For our part, we focus on our next match against Rwanda and the three points in this game and we’ll try to score as many goals as possible "
For Amer Bouazza, Ahmed Hassan’s statements are a mere provocation to irritate the Algerian players and distract them before the match. Scoring five goals against Algeria would be an impossible dream. We promise him a response on the ground."
