Algeria out to avenge '82 vs. Germany

Algeria fans showed their delight as their side secured a first-ever World Cup knockout spot with a 1-1 draw against Russia.

Algeria boss Vahid Halilhodzic says the infamous events of the 1982 World Cup are still fresh in the minds of the nation ahead of the meeting with Germany.

- Halilhodzic: Algeria always improving

Algeria set up a clash with Joachim Low's side in the round of 16 after securing a 1-1 draw with Russia on Thursday.

Next Monday's match in Porto Alegre inevitably brings to mind one of Algeria's most famous victories, when they beat West Germany 2-1 in Gijon in what was the North Africans' first ever World Cup match in 1982.

What happened after that is less fondly remembered, however, as West Germany defeated neighbours Austria 1-0 in their final group game amid huge controversy. The convenient scoreline was good enough for both teams to qualify at the expense of Algeria.

Lakhdar Belloumi celebrates during Algeria's win against West Germany in 1982, but they exited after a highly controversial result in Gijon.

"We have not forgotten '82, nor Gijon, nor Germany," Halilhodzic said after the Russia game in quotes widely reported in the German media. "It may have been a long time but every Algerian still knows what happened back then."

Halilhodzic also revealed his delight at leading Algeria to the knockout stages for the first time.

"It's an indescribable joy this evening and it's completely deserved," he told reporters. "We played an heroic match and we deserved to qualify. I'm very proud. We've made huge progress in the last three years and this is a huge reward for us."

Valencia's Sofiane Feghouli said it was a dream come true for his team.

"I've been part of the national team for three years," he told BeIN Sports. "My goal was to have a big World Cup, to create my story. Now it's happened.

"I'm very proud. This qualification is for all the Algerians in the world, all the Arabs and all the Muslims."

Algeria will start as underdogs in the knockout stages but many of their fans will be hoping that they can once again shock a more fancied German side.

Mahmoud Guendouz, who played in Algeria's win over West Germany in 1982, believes there is a chance the North Africans can upset the odds once more.

"It was beautiful," he told L'Equipe. "It was the first time that West Germany were beaten by a team from the Maghreb. For the second goal from [Lakhdar] Belloumi we completed 13 passes in the build-up.

"In 1982, West Germany had no idea what we represented. Now, with new technology, everything knows everything about everyone. So it will be more difficult but they can do it."
