New Algeria national team coach Lucas Alcaraz will closely monitor the Super Eagles players at close quarters before the North Africans face Nigeria in a World Cup qualifier in November 2017.
The former Granada manager arrived in Algeria on Monday night and held his first press conference at the FAF CTN in Sidi Moussa on Wednesday.
He said “We will focus our work on three components. First watch the matches of the Algerian team. Then watch those of our opponents and chat with the players, we will also follow the matches of the championship of the Liga 1 Mobilis. We will do everything possible to integrate Algerian football in all its fields. As for the World Cup the situation is complicated but we will fight in every match.”
Lucas Alcaraz will run the rule over the players in the domestic championship every month before the World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.
