The Algerian and Palestinian footbal teams on Wednesday held a historical friendly match that made an exception to the rule, where Algerian fans cheered for the Palestinian team, and Palestinian fans cheered for the Algerian team.
The match, held at the 5 July Stadium in Algeia city, ended with Palestine winning with one point, and cheers for the Palestinian lives and land, with poetry cited by the commentator.
Against all odds, Algerians were celebrating the Palestinian goal in their own net.
The motto of the match was “We are with Palestine whether unjust or oppressed,” a term that was said by the deceased Algerian president, Houari Boumediene.
The Algerian people have shown numerous solidarity stands with the Palestinian people, especially during football matches that included thousands cheering for Palestine, despite the irrelevance of the participating teams.
The historical bond comes for the mutuality of struggle for freedom, especially with Algeria being the coutrny of one million martyrs who died for the freedom of their land.
