Cape Town - Algeria assistant coach Nabil Neghiz has promised "classy football" from the team when they take on Ghana in the second round of Group C fixtures on Friday.

The Fennec Foxes secured all three points in their Africa Cup of Nations opener against South Africa on Monday, but looked vulnerable at the back after conceding the first goal before giving away a penalty.

And, although they managed to come back to secure a 3-1 win, Neghiz admits there were plenty of areas they need to work on before taking on the Black Stars this weekend.

"In the first match we did many mistakes and we are working now to fix all those mistakes that will not be allowed against a team like Ghana. We are working hard to fix the problems in our defence that made us suffer in the first match," Football411 quote Neghiz as saying.

"Ghana are a kind of team that play very good football and we like to play against that kind of team. So I can promise we will play classy football against them.

"The Black Stars lost their first game against Senegal and that will make them fight against us, because they will not want to lose a second straight match."
