Legend Rabah Madjer does not agree with Algeria’s idea of asking for the second leg against Cameroon to be replayed. The former glory of African football asks his compatriots to show fair play.
Beaten 2-1 after extra time in Blida and eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, Algeria had asked FIFA to replay this return match against Cameroon counting for the play-offs. A request that the legend Rabah Madjer struggles to understand.
“It is not new that Cameroon wins us. If we replay this match and we are beaten again, the shame will be a thousand times over… Great footballing countries are fair play. I will not see Cameroon asking for the resumption of a match if it had lost. Let’s just grow”
Rabah Madjer wonders what would happen to football if all the defeated teams asked for their matches to be replayed. “Many countries are also likely to ask for their matches to be replayed. What will become of football? Never winners or losers. he concluded triumphantly.
