Lions saluted in Algeria with pictures of Albert Ebosse, Cameroonian footballer who was murdered in Algeria 2014

Albert Ebosse was a  24 years old Cameroonian who played for JS Kabylie in Algeria. It was reported by the Algerian foreign affairs minister that Albert died from a slated sharp object shot by fans, but after an Autopsy, it was declared that the injuries found on him were closely inflicted not from a distance range as said by the Algerian football authorities.

Albert in the previous season was the highest goal scorer for the Algerian 1st division team and his death caused a lot of diplomatic friction between both countries. Even after that Algeria did not show remorse for the action. Neither his Algerian team nor the Algerian football federation offered substantial financial support to the deceased Family
To many Cameroonians in Algeria, this is a must win match in order to honour the fallen hero.
After seeing Alberts Pictures everywhere, Maxim Choupou Moting says that leaving aside the fact that Cameroon often win Algeria, they are expecting some animosity from Algerian Fans given their history with Albert's case where Cameroon had taken it seriously and sanctions were made.
JSK of Algeria had been banned from pan African games for 2 years and was forced to play all home league matches on empty fields.
Cameroonians expectations are high. Many see this as a revenge match in honour of Albert Ebosse.
Good Luck Lions
