Freedom in the air

Algeria donate money to Gaza

Algeria's World Cup squad will donate their bonus money to the people of Gaza, striker Islam Slimani has revealed. After reaching the second round of the tournament, Algeria were eliminated by Germany after an excellent display, taking Joachim Low's men into extra time before succumbing to a 2-1 defeat. The team returned to Algeria as heroes and the players have opted to donate their prize money from the summer tournament to those less fortunate. "They need it more than us," Slimani said when asked about why the squad were making the grand gesture.
