Algeria Striker Rafik Saifi: We Want The World Cup More Than Egypt

Al Geria

Saifi believes that the Fennecs are more determined than their group rivals.

Algerian international forward Rafik Saifi has told Le Buteur that his side are more motivated than Egypt in their quest for a World Cup place due to their better position in their group and how close they are to achieving their dream.

“We need to keep our feet on the ground until the end since we saw that Egypt are capable to come back at any moment. A mistake on our part and they won’t hesitate to jump on it but with the players we have, I don’t think they’ll be able to,” he explained.

“We want to go to the World Cup more than Egypt and, god willing, that’s what we’re going to do. It’s time for Algeria to smile again after all these years.”

Meanwhile, the player also commented on his accurate prediction prior to the match that he would be the one to score the winning goal.

“Honestly I can’t explain it in a rational manner. I knew I was going to score, that’s it. That kind of feeling happens inside. You think about it, you believe it, and then when you’re on the field you do everything for it to become real. That’s what I did thanks to god’s grace,” he added.
