Astounding Algeria! Twitter gushes over World Cup surprise package [Tweets]

Perhaps it sounds a tad cynical, maybe even stupid based on the World Cup thus far, but South Korea v Algeria doesn’t exactly scream goalfest.

Yet that’s exactly what it was as Algeria destroyed South Korea in the first half before holding off a fightback from their Asian opponents in the second half.

South Korea deserve plaudits for their part in this cracking match but who knew Algeria had this side to them?

Billed before the tournament as a well-organised side, one who sat behind their lead against Belgium.

Had they attacked they could have finished off The Red Devils but I’m sure they fancy their chances against a disappointing Russia team; they certainly recruited a few new fans tonight.
