Algeria requests an appeal in the African Nations before the "Battle of the Elephants"

The Algerian Football Federation called on its African counterpart, "CAF", to change the stadium for its match with Ivory Coast, on Tuesday, which is decisive for the reservation of the "Desert Warriors" qualification ticket in the African Football Nations Championship, in which the sons of coach Jamal Balmadi did not score any victory in the past two rounds after a tie with Sierra Leone was negative, and the defeat against Equatorial Guinea with a clean goal, which means that any result other than a victory will lead to Algeria's exit from the tournament early.

The Algerian team suffered greatly in the matches of Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea due to the poor ground of the "Jaboma Baduala" stadium, which seemed to be a field for agriculture and not for football, which was criticized by most of the teams participating in the tournament. 

And the Algerian newspaper Al-Shorouk said that "Algeria and Ivory Coast have asked to change the venue for the match between them, to be held at Ahmedou Ahedigo Stadium in Yaounde, instead of Jaboma Stadium in Douala."

She added, "The Algerian team hopes to transfer its last match with the "elephants" to another stadium, so that the "warriors" can apply their usual style of play and successfully overcome the Côte d'Ivoire obstacle, in order to qualify for the final price.

Algeria occupies the last place in Group E with one point, behind leaders Ivory Coast with four points, Equatorial Guinea with three points, and Sierra Leone with two points.
