In a shocking revelation, former Algerian International Mohammed Shoaib has reported that his team struck a deal with Nigeria during AFCON 1984 in the Ivory Coast to eliminate Ghana.
Shoaib, who was on the Algerian team, revealed to the Algerian media that Nigeria needed to draw to qualify ‘and we helped them with that after the deal.’
”We made a deal with Nigeria to end the game with a draw and they moved with us to the semifinal, while Ghana crashed out of the tournament although they won against Malawi,” he said.
”Algerians were still depressed after the plot between Germany and Austria in the World Cup 1982 which ousted us so we did the same to Ghana two years later,” he added angrily. Nigeria for the record lost the end game to Cameroon.
