Aoudia hoping to face Tunisia



Algeria forward Mohamed Amine Aoudia says he is hoping to play when his side face Tunisia in a crucial 2013 Africa Cup of Nations opener.

The 25-year-old came on as a substitute during Saturday’s 0-0 draw against South Africa, replacing Islam Slimani.

However, he says he is aiming to play a big part as the Fennec Foxes look to get their campaign off to a good start.

"If the coach gives me a chance against Tunisia, I will do my best to find the back of the net,” Aoudia told APS.

“This game is very important to us. It could be the key to our qualification for the quarterfinals.”

Vahid Halilhodzic’s side have been criticised for not being adventurous enough when going forward in their recent outings, but Aoudia says they will be sharper when they face Tunisia.

“After working the physical aspect, we will begin the technical and tactical work,” he said.

“I'm sure that our attack will be much more efficient against Tunisia, so there’s no need to worry.”

Algeria will play their final friendly match against Premier Soccer League side Platinum Stars on Thursday.
