Algeria v Russia: Group H - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Perhaps he’s Algeria’s biggest star, but Yacine Brahimi admits Ghana is a big threat.

The 2015 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off in under a month and the North Africans are favorites, having ended the calendar year as Africa’s best-ranked team.

But being in the same group with South Africa, Senegal and, especially Ghana, gives the player reason to be careful.

[contextly_sidebar id=”DtvA75A2eTywFsAXO3k45S9MF5yyey4M”] “Now Ghana for me in the past five years has been the best team on the continent, but you know, in a game everything is possible.”

Algeria play the Black Stars in Mongomo on January 23. “The only way to respond is on the field,” Brahimi cautions.

“From my side, I will go to the Afcon and we’ll see.”

The player, voted BBC African Footballer of the Year on December 1, was named as part of Christian Gourcuff’s Afcon squad for the tournament earlier this week.
