Algerian defender Ramy Bensebaini is wary of Nigeria ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-final match in Egypt on Sunday evening.

The Desert Foxes reached the semi-finals after beating Ivory Coast on penalties in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

On the other hand, three-time AFCON winners Nigeria defeated South Africa in another quarter-final match on Wednesday.

Bensebaini is now expecting a tough match against the Super Eagles on Sunday.

''We are in the semifinals and we do not think which opponent to face and which to avoid,'' Bensebaini told Le Buteur.

''At this stage of the competition, all teams are formidable, especially when it comes to a top team like Nigeria who are having a great Africa Cup of Nations.

''It is also a team composed of several good individual players. Our task looks so difficult.''

The game between Algeria and Nigeria will be played at the Cairo International Stadium.
