CAIRO: Algeria manager Rabah Saadane is overwhelmed by his side s thumping 3-1 victory over Egypt in the World Cup qualifiers on Sunday.
The Desert Foxes took charge of Group C with the shocking win in Blida, thanks to a poor second-half display from Egypt.
I can t believe we have won by this score line. One goal would have satisfied us, a jubilant Saadane told Egyptian radio FM.
We gave the Egyptian team the respect they deserved before the game and we prepared well for this day.
We controlled the game in the second half and my players managed to overcome Egypt s counter attack.
Overall, the game was excellent and that s good for Arab football.
Egypt will host Rwanda next month, whereas Algeria visits Zambia in the upcoming matchday.
