ALGERIA FOOTBALL HISTORY

The team was established in 1963 as the successor of the FLN football team.


The Algeria national football team (Arabic: منتخب الجزائر لكرة القدم‎), nicknamed الأفنــاك, Les Fennecs (The Fennec Foxes), represents Algeria in association football and is controlled by the Fédération Algérienne de Football. Algeria's home ground is the Stade 5 Juillet 1962 in Algiers and their head coach is Vahid Halilhodžić. Algeria was founded on January 1, 1962 and joined FIFA on January 1, 1964.

Algeria has qualified for four World Cups in 1982, 1986, 2010, and 2014. Algeria has also won the African Cup of Nations once in 1990, when they hosted the tournament.

The traditional rivals of Algeria have been Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. However, more recently, Egypt has become the main rival after a number of incidents involving the two teams, most recently during the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification, in which Algeria defeated Egypt 1-0 in a tense tiebreaker in Omdurman, Sudan to qualify to the World Cup
