The Algeria national football team is controlled by the Fédération Algérienne de Football.
Algeria has qualified for three World Cups in 1982, 1986 and 2010. Algeria has also won the Africa Cup of Nations once in 1990, when they hosted the tournament.
The traditional rivals of Algeria have been Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. However, more recently, Egypt has become the main rival after a number of incidents involving the two teams, most recently during the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification, in which Algeria defeated Egypt 1-0 in a tense tiebreaker in Omdurman, Sudan to qualify to the World Cup.
Algeria first appeared in the final of the Summer Olympics held in Moscow in 1980. They managed to reach the quarter finals of the tournament.
