Dead rubber games are not dead after all because players will play for the pride of their “father’s names” and “match bonuses”.
Algeria and Nigeria will square up in their final group B game at the Stade Chahid Hamlaou in Constantine and ex player Tijani Babangida insists the game is still important and there are still stakes to fight for.
Nigeria will finish top of the group regardless of the result on Friday having secured more points and the world cup ticket with victory over Zambia in October.
In a chat with brila.net the former Super Eagles winger, Tijani Babangida, talked up what to expect from the Eagles.
‘The players should realize that this is an important game regardless of our qualification for the world cup.
‘They’ll know playing out there is about answering their fathers’ names and to also play for match bonuses.’
