Forward Islam Slimani reveals Algeria team donated their World Cup prize money to people in Gaza

BrkB6U IQAAiYJo Forward Islam Slimani reveals Algeria team donated their World Cup prize money to people in GazaAs if the World could fall in love with this Algeria team any more, eh?

Not only did the underdogs impress with their performances in Brazil but now they’re impressing off the pitch as well after an astounding act of kindness was revealed by journalist Waleed Abu Nada.

He told of how the Algerian team donated their prize money from the tournament to people far worse off from them in Gaza.

The selfless behaviour of the Algeria team was in sharp contrast with other competing countries from Africa with Ghana and Cameroon imploding due to quarrels over money.

Algeria are a shining example for African nations to follow.
