Streets on Fire, After Algeria Draw 0-0 with England, Le Vieux Port, Marseille, 18 June 2010

Following an uninspiring match lacking flair and imagination, Algerian fans take to the streets of Marseille. Heaven only knows what would have ensued if the Algerian team had actually won. I might find out in Algiers, when they meet the U. S. A. The team has apparently been preparing for these clashes with imperialist powers by watching The Battle of Algiers (1966).

      Dear Kenza,
      I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the Algerians’ passion. If you live in Algiers it would be a pleasure to meet you and maybe celebrate Algeria’s inevitable victory over the USA.
      Very best wishes,
      John

      (1, 2, 3, we love Algérie!)
