Islam Slimani delighted by Algeria triumph

Algeria forward Islam Slimani expresses his delight following the team's memorable victory over South Korea at the World Cup.

Algeria forward Islam Slimani has expressed his delight following the team's 4-2 win over South Korea at the World Cup.

Slimani was among the goalscorers on Sunday night as the Africans boosted their chances of reaching the second round with a comfortable victory in Porto Alegre.

The result also marked the first time that Algeria had won a match at the World Cup in 32 years.

"It's brilliant to score for my team, it's a wonderful feeling," Slimani told FIFA.com. "I have to thank the coach for giving me the opportunity and I can say that all of the players gave everything for this win.

"It's still our aim to reach the Round of 16, we have a chance and I hope we'll achieve that."

Algeria must avoid defeat to Russia in their final group game on Thursday if they want to progress in Brazil.
