Algeria is an African country mostly covered by desert. It has an area of 2,381,741 area in km and has a population of over 39,000,000 people. Algeria is Africa's largest country due to Sudan being seperated by South Sudan during the days of the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.


Algeria's most popular sport is men's football. The women's national volleyball team has had the same success as the men's football team, reaching the top 20 in the world rankings for at least once and qualifying for the World Championship in 2010.

The Algeria national football team qualified for four FIFA World Cups, in 1982, 1986, 2010 and 2014. Algeria's notable wins include a shocking 2-1 victory over eventual finalists West Germany in 1982 and a 4-2 win over Korea Republic in 2014. If the 1986 World Cup system was used in 1982, Algeria would have advanced to the knockout stages; but were eliminated in the group stage.
