Germany take on Algeria in what should be an enthralling last-16 encounter in tonight’s World Cup clash, with the unfancied African nation looking for a long-awaited revenge on their opponents.
Although Algeria have already made history in this year’s tournament by reaching the knockout stages for the first time, they are now desperate to get one over their big-name opposition after a controversial incident from the 1982 World Cup finals.
An agreement at the time between Germany and Austria allowed the two sides to play out a game with almost no effort from either team which saw them both finish with enough points to eliminate Algeria from the group stage that year.
Still hurting from that day, Vahid Halilhodzic’s side will be hoping to cause a major upset here and beat one of the tournament favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.
After winning their group, Germany will be hoping to continue their strong run of form as they look to end their relatively long wait for a major trophy, and leading scorer Thomas Mueller will no doubt be the man they look to for inspiration here.
