Brazil 2014: The Brave Algeria Team Give Their World-cup Bonuses To The Needy


Even before I read this report, all I had for the Algerian World Cup team was respect and admiration.

After their very courageous performance at the World cup, they deserve to be paid serious homage.

However, they have even won more hearts as they decided to donate their team salary to people of Gaza in Palestine.

The Les Fennecs team earned $9m (N1.6b) from playing in the 2014 World cup tournament in Brazil.

Team striker Islam Slimani has said the players will donate their pay to the Arab people of Gaza in Palestine.

‘They need it more than us‘, 26-year old Slimani, who plays for Sporting Lisbon says.

Algeria lost 2 – 1 to Germany in the round of 16.
