AFCON

Starting XI: Algeria v Nigeria

Two African giants clash when Algeria meet Nigeria in an African Cup of Nations semi-final tie at Cairo International Stadium on Sunday evening - here's how they line up.

Africa Cup of Nations Semi-Final

Teams: Algeria v Nigeria

Date: 14 July 2019

Venue: Cairo International Stadium

The match gets underway at 21h00.
 
The Desert Foxes are unbeaten in 11 competitive fixtures since appointing former midfielder Djamel Belmadi in November 2018. 
 
Belmadi's side have only conceded one goal in the tournament and made it through to the last four courtesy of a penalty shootout victory over Ivory Coast.
 
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles accounted for Bafana Bafana in the quarter-finals with a 2-1 win. Their record against African nations since the appointment of Gernot Rohr is seriously impressive as they have lost just twice to African opposition in three years.
 
Nigerian captain John Obi Mikel is back in contention having recovered from an injury sustained in the last-16 success over Madagascar. 
 
Algeria have no concerns on the injury front but midfielder Adlène Guedioura is one booking away from suspension.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Algeria: M’Bolhi, Zeffane, Mandi, Benlamri, Bensebaini, Guedioura, Bennacer, Mahrez, Feghouli, Bounedjah, Belaili.

Nigeria: Akpeyi, Ekong, Omeru, Awaziem, Collins, Ndidi, Musa, Etebo, Chukwueze, Iwobi, Ighalo.
