Algeria coach Rabah Madjer says his dream is to guide his team to the Africa Cup of Nations title next year.

Madjer was a star of the 1990 Algerian team which won the AFCON trophy on home soil in 1990, and now hopes to bring the Fennec Foxes to a second continental crown.

“In the short term, my wish is to put a second star on the jersey of the Algerian team,” he told Spanish newspaper Super Deporte this past weekend.

“I offered an African Cup to my country as a player and now I dream of offering another star as a coach in 2019 for the CAN to be played in Cameroon.”

Algeria will resume the qualification campaign for the 2019 AFCON when they face the Gambia in their second Group D match in September.

The North Africans are top of the pool after winning their opening match 1-0 at home to Togo in June last year.
