Let?s get one thing out of the way early:Egypt.2010 World Cup JerseyPhew ? that?s over. (It?s media law that in mentioning the Algerian football team of this World Cup, Egypt must follow shortly thereafter.)The Desert Foxes ? but for Cameroon?s Indomitable Lions, probably the coolest nickname at the World Cup if only because it sounds like a scantily clad female pop group ? are thrilled to be here. Not only are they at the World Cup, but this did so at the expense of rivals and two-time defending African champs Egypt in the tie-breaking playoff. (Now three-time, but Algeria have requested that go unmentioned.) soccer portugalIn derbies, the prize is simply the victory. However this little trinket, a trip to the World Cup, is no small potatoes for Algeria. Nickname: Les Fennecs (The Desert Foxes)Group: C; England jerseyEngland, Snia, USA.FIFA World Ranking as of March 31st 2010: 27thCoach: Rabah Sa?dane. No really, that?s correct: an African team does have an African coach. Rabah is in fact, at this moment, the only African coach at the tournament. Better yet: he?s actually Algerian. What a novel concept.Snia jerseyDespite not having enjoyed a World Cup since 1990, this will not be Rabah?s first dance: his first gig included the trip to Spain in 1982 with the national team. This now his fifth stint with the team, he?ll get another crack at the big ball. Honestly, this timeBrazil Soccer Jersey Key Players: Beginning in the back Nadir Belhadj begins in the back, but often does not stay there as a very attack-oriented wingback with plenty of pace. Qualifying hero Antar Yahia and Madjid Bougherra will make up the strong, overseas based central duo.Captain Yazid Mansouri leads from midfield along with Karim Ziani, perhaps the most well-known abroad for his tricky attacking skills and ballwork. Youngster Karim Matmour has also begun making a name for himself along the attacking flank as a skillful and quick winger, and Mourad Meghni will provide the creativity.mexico soccer jerseyUp top Abdelkader Ghezzal is a strong point man who will likely lead the line now that one-time leading man Rafik Saifi is into his 35th year. They?ll need goals from somewhere, as outside of Saifi?s 18 the next best lies in the back with Belhadj and Yahia at 5 apiece.
