This time the prize is a place in the final of the 2019 AFCON.
Onyekuru and Osimehn are two of Nigeria's bright talents now, but they are yet to be given a chance at the ongoing biennial tournament in Egypt.
Nigeria had one day's rest more than Algeria, who needed extra time and penalties to squeeze past Ivory Coast on Thursday, but Rohr doesn't believe that will play a factor in Cairo.
Nigeria got their campaign off to a winning start following their 1-0 win over Burundi, and then maintain status quo after beating Guinea 1-0 in their second game.
"Now I see a solid Algeria side with a good balance between attack and defense". We've played 20 players already.
Conceding only one goal in five matches (scoring 10 in the process) is simply the mark of solidity and the Les Fennecs are buoyed by that accomplishment. In football most times, you have to earn the right to win. "Even the defeat helped us to be more humble and sometimes it is good also". And Les Fennecs' next game would perhaps be their biggest test in the 2019 AFCON.
The north Africans' sole triumph at the Africa Cup of Nations came when they hosted the tournament in 1990 and defeated Nigeria 1-0 in the final.
"He is one for the future, he scored his first goal for Nigeria at Afcon that will give him confidence".
The Super Eagles will face Algeria in the semi-final of the 2019 AFCON at the Cairo International stadium on Sunday, 8pm Nigerian time.
However Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is confident his men will be ready for action against the Desert Foxes.
"Everyone is fit for the game against Algeria". This said Algeria know better than judge Nigeria by mere statistics.
They have got to the semi-finals stage or further in 14 of their 17 AFCON appearances, including 11 of the last 12.
Champions in 2013 before incredibly failing to qualify in 2015 and 2017, there is a feeling in the country that the Super Eagles could achieve a fourth success on the continental showpiece event. He did very well against South Africa and the goal will take him a long way. What I have realized is that they approach a game depending on their opponent.
Last night was devoted for watching the quarter final match between Algeria and Côte d' Ivoire.
