Cape Town - Algerian soccer coach Rabah Madjer has delivered one of the angriest press conferences ever seen in sport.

Having watched his side beat the Central African Republic 3-0 in an international friendly on Tuesday, Madjer then exploded at the post-match press conference. 

Leicester City superstar Riyad Mahrez, who plays for Algeria, was asked by a journalist to explain the national side's poor form and their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. 

As Mahrez was about to answer, Madjer interrupted him and took over. 

Whoever the journalist was has clearly not held back in his assessment of the Algerian side, because Madjer climbed in and engaged in a screaming match with the man who asked the question. 

It made for an awkward exchange, and the look on Mahrez's face pretty much sums it up. 

Algeria finished rock bottom of their World Cup qualifying group, winning none of their six matches as Nigeria topped the group and qualified for Russia.
