Lift the Algerian flag the highest – Soudani



Algerian striker Hilal Al Arabi Soudani expressed his determination to succeed just a few days before kick-off of the Africa Cup of Nations 2013.

Les Fennecs, who have been in South Africa for a few days now, held South Africa to a goalless draw on Saturday in Soweto during a warm-up match, which is a very encouraging feat according to Soudani.

“Against South Africa we showed strong aspects of our game and we could have won the match,’’ he said.

‘We were faced with a strong South African team who were playing with the support of their fans, but we were able to develop our usual game.”

The former ASO Chlef player is aware of the difficulties that await them in Group D where they will meet Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Togo, but is counting on the good preparation they have put in to meet the challenge.

“This is a very difficult group with teams that need no introduction. The outcome of these matches will depend on small details, but with the preparation that we have done, we are aware of the task that lies ahead,” admitted the striker.

“Qualification remains our goal, and not only for the players and the staff, but also for all our fans who support us and who encourage the national team. We will do all we can to lift the Algerian flag the highest.”

Hilal Al Arabi Soudani first appeared for the national team in June 2011 against Morocco and has since scored six goals in nine games for les Fennecs.
