Algeria star Adlene Guedioura has revealed he joked with his Nigeria teammates at Watford he will not talk to them until after next month’s World Cup qualifier because he considers them as “enemies”.

Nigeria hosts Algeria on November 12 in continuation of the World Cup qualifiers after they won 2-1 in Zambia and Algeria were held to a 1-1 draw by Cameroon.

“I said to them I won’t talk to them until next month because they are my enemies now,” the 30-year-old Algeria midfielder told the Watford official website.

“Of course it’s a joke, but it will be a pleasure to play against them. It’s special to meet teammates who you are used to training with every day and to play against them in one game, so it’s quite good and strange at the same time.

 

“It’s going to be an important game for us. I’m sure we’ll have a good welcome from the Nigerian people and from Ighalo and Isaac, but when we go into the pitch they’re not going to be my teammates or my friends any more.

“It’s going to be a tough game and I can’t wait for it.”
