Algeria are hoping to improve against Germany after reaching the last-16 for the first time.

Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic has suggested that his team can improve before embarking on their first World Cup knockout game against Germany.

The Desert Foxes will now face Joachim Low's men in the last 16 after an Islam Slimani goal ensured that they picked up a point against Russia to progress.

However, Halilhodzic believes that the African side can push for more.

He told reporters: "I think we can do things much better and why not? Maybe we will against Germany.

"We are not at the level of Brazil but we will try to do everything to attract Brazilian fans in Porto Alegre."

Algeria will be joined by Nigeria in the last 16, with the Super Eagles reaching the knockout phase for the first time since 1998.
