Go out for a victory - Halilhodzic



For Algeria national team coach Vahid Halilhodzic, Tuesday’s objective against Tunisia at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, in their debut Africa Cup of Nations 2013 Group D match, is quite simple.

“There are no sums to be made, we have to go for a win,” assured the coach.

Rightly so, with Ivory Coast and Togo in their group, the two North-African giants will have no room for error in their clash.

And the Fennecs’ technician is rather confident ahead of this match, which will be crucial to the outcome of the rest of the competition.

“I am optimistic, because I have confidence in my players. After that we’ll see how the results of our matches take shape. One thing is for sure, we will give everything to honour the Algerian people,” assured the former Ivory Coast national team coach.

“This is an important match, even a decider for the two teams. The one who is the most motivated and the most determined will most definitely win this match,” he warned.

Before this 100% Maghrebi clash, Ivory Coast will measure strengths with the Sparrowhawks of Togo for the Group D opening match.

The Elephants are the group as well as tournament favourites, so they have no room for error before their clashes with the two North-African powerhouses.
