Martino’s side will face the African nation in their second game at this international break, just days after beating the Netherlands 1-0

Mexico recorded a surprisingly positive 1-0 result last week against the Netherlands, they are now turning their heads on another extremely difficult and challenging encounter with Algeria as they prepare to finish their European mini-tour Although many don’t know much about the African side, they would be surprised to know more about the story, which I am about to do. Let’s look both sides

Mexico arrive in this game the winner of their last seven consecutive matches, the Netherlands being the most relevant The other six victims are Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda (twice), Panama (twice) and Guatemala ; not exactly the formation of rivals that you would expect a quality team like Mexico to face off In fact their last loss came against a quality national team, Argentina Mexico lost that one by 4-0 in September 2019 But after defeating the Netherlands, Mexico will seek to confirm its relevance and quality by beating another power

Algeria is the current champion of the Africa Cup of Nations They were crowned in the 2019 edition for the second time in the history of their country (their first return in 1990) Led by the head coach Djamel Belmadi, they won their three group stage matches (Senegal, Keny and Tanzania), without conceding a single goal in said stage In fact, they only conceded two goals in the entire tournament In the round of 16, they beat Guinea by a 3-0 final They then drew against Côte d’Ivoire in the quarter-final 1- 1, and won on penalties Their semi-final match was no easier, and still defeated a tough Nigeria side 2-1, and ultimately, reconfirmed their dominance over Senegal, in beating them a second time, this time in the final by a score of 1-0

More recently, Algeria arrives in this match winner of its last three in the general classification (Nigeria, Botswana, Zambia), once again, without conceding a single goal.They even beat the Colombian national team in a friendly in October 2019 with a 3-0 final As you can see, these aren’t scrubs. If that’s not enough, they also have a few familiar faces on their team; Manchester City MF / RW Riyad Mahrez topped the list, followed by ST Andy Delort of Montpellier and Metz MF / FW Farid Boulaya, who started Friday’s friendly Nigeria Ex-Porto LW Yacine Brahimi is also part of this offense Defensively speaking, Metz GK Alexandre Oukidja, Real Betis DEF Aïssa Mandi and Lazio LB Mohamed Fares lead on this side of the pitch It is clear that their defense is a priority and extreme force for Belmadi

In short, the Algerian national team is no slouch, and for those who thought Mexico had proven everything they needed for The Netherlands last week couldn’t be more wrong It is an ideal way to show consistency and that Mexico is ready to compete with the powers of all the continents, while obtaining a positive result in a reliable way. Raúl Jiménez and his company up front should have their hands full with this tough, physical defensive team.While many did not expect it, a real second test in a row will be held ahead of Mexico in La Haya, the Netherlands. Down in just a few hours
