Bensebaini defends in a wonderful way

The Algerian defender contributes a lot to his team, in defense he is difficult to pass and at set plays he is very dangerous with his aerial play and positioning. 

He is also one of the best elements of the team as he plays for Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga. 

11:28 PM2 years ago

Amazing level of the "Tecatito".

Jesús Manuel Corona presented a very high level in the match against the Netherlands.
He generated incredible plays, he ran and tried; he even stayed very close to score in a shot that came out very close to the rival team's post.

The Algerians are an excellent rival

In recent years, the Algerian national team has had an outstanding performance, as in 2019 they were crowned champions of Africa.

11:08 PM2 years ago

Mexico goes for a perfect closing on FIFA date

For the first national team games of the year, they have played an acceptable role. 

In the first friendly match of the year they defeated the Guatemalan national team with a convincing score of 3-0.

While in his last game they beat the Netherlands by the smallest of margins with a dubious penalty that was converted with great technique by the Tepejano, Raúl Alonso Jiménez.
