Manchester City’s star forward Riyad Mahrez has made a vow to Algeria fans ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations campaign.
Mahrez is currently in Cameroon preparing for Algeria’s opening group match against Sierra Leone on Tuesday, January 11.
Algeria will also be competing against Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea in Group E.
Mahrez would be looking forward to helping his country defend the AFCON title which they won in 2019.
And speaking ahead of his country’s fixture, Mahrez said on AFCON’s Twitter account @CAF_Online: “I am at the Africa Cup of Nations so I just wanted to say thank you for all the support from all over the world.
“Obviously from our Algerian people and for our country we are going to make you proud.”
