Lucas Alcaraz outlines Algeria vision

New Algeria coach Lucas Alcaraz has explained what the Fennecs can expect from him after replacing Georges Leekens, and despite the scale of the task ahead of him, has insisted that he isn't afraid of the challenge to come.

The former Granada boss was appointed by the North African giants last week, only days after being dismissed by the Spanish strugglers and replaced by Arsenal legend Tony Adams.

He was a surprise appointment -- particularly considering the nation's reported interest in Aitor Karanka...

Algeria appoint Lucas Alcaraz as head coach

Algeria have named Lucas Alcaraz as their new head coach, only three days after he was dismissed as Granada boss.

Les Fennecs parted ways with Georges Leekens following a miserable Nations Cup campaign in which they headed to Gabon among the favourites for the title but limped out in the group stage after taking just two points.

Algeria crashed out of the African Nations Cup at the group stage as Islam Slimani's brace was not enough to beat a much-changed Senegal side in Franceville.

Senegal were already assured of topping Group B but despite showing 10 alterations from their previous game, they still had enough to hold Georges Leekens' side to a 2-2 draw.

Leicester striker Slimani struck in either half but saw Pape Diop and Moussa Sow cancel out his efforts - although even victory would not have been enough as Tunisia beat...

Unfinished stadiums, political unrest becloud great football at AFCON

The Malian fans roared and, just for a moment, you felt the gold-coloured roof might lift off Stade de Port-Gentil. Their team had been threatening an equaliser in the Group D fixture against Ghana for most of the second half; a late corner was a chance to increase the pressure and from behind the goal came that fevered, visceral sense of a crowd trying to will the ball into the net.

It did not happen for Mali, largely due to the excellence of the Ghana goalkeeper Razak Brimah, but for the impartial...
