Former AC Milan and Inter Milan defender Taribo West has urged the Super Eagles to treat upcoming friendly with Algeria and Tunisia with seriousness.
The three-time African champions will lock horns with the North African rivals for their time since meeting at the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
While Super Eagles will have the chance to avenge their 2019 African cup of Nations semi-final defeat when they meet Algeria on October 13 in Austria, The Gernot Rohr side will be aiming to maintain their dominance over the Tunisian four days later at the same venue.
While speaking with Le Buteur ahead of both matches, Taribo West heaped praises on the organizers and he added that the encounter will be good tests for the Super Eagles.
“Yes, of course, I would say it is a very good thing to organize this friendly match. Both teams had a great African Cup and now, it is time to review things in each squad.
“The two teams need to rebuild after having already met in the semi-finals, it is important to see each other in a friendly match. They are very close and have great players.”
Taribo added: “This will allow Nigeria to try to take revenge on Algeria, but the most important thing is to know how to learn from a meeting like this. We will see, it will be a friendly match.
“But Algeria-Nigeria has been and will remain an important meeting for the two teams,” he said.
