With the Qlamqtar 2022 world cup only about 11 periods away (depending on your own set of menstrual circumstances), I’m going to be answering all the burning questions leading up to the tournament. Today, I take a look at Algeria, who have appeared at the World Cup Finals on four occasions.

Algerians will never forget what the Germans and Austrians did to their people. At the 1982 World Cup in Spain, Algeria stunned the world by defeating West Germany in their opening match. Still considered one of the greatest upsets in World Cup history, the stunning victory lead to the saddest chapter in sporting history.

The Algerians–following their remarkable opening day win and a second victory over Chile in their final match–knew that anything other than a 1-0 or 2-0 West German win over Austria would be enough for them to go through to the second round (ahead of the Austrians on goal difference). The day after Algeria’s final match, West Germany and Austria both took the field in Gijon, knowing that a 1-0 or 2-0 West German win would send both teams through and knock Algeria out. After West Germany took an early lead, the rest of the 80 remaining minutes was characterized by both teams making little to no effort to attack, sitting back off their opponents on defense, and content to not make any decent attempts on goal. When the half-time whistle blew, players from opposing teams were seen exiting the pitch with their arms around each other and by that point it was clear that they had agreed to end the match 1-0 or 2-0 so as to ensure both sides progress. Unsurprisingly, it ended 1-0, eliminating Algeria and helping both West Germany and Austria advance.

The Disgrace of Gijon is an event that shall forever traumatize Algerians, and it’s the sole reason for all 44 million Algerians spending every waking moment of their lives with the terrifying sensation that Satan is crushing their brain with his bare hands like a vice, and although they just want to scream horrifyingly out of sheer terror and existential dread, they cannot because when they try to, nothing out comes out, leaving them forever trapped in a state of silent, agonizing and suicidal brain-snapping torture.

One to watch: Your visa application

Out of all African countries, obtaining a visa to Algeria is among the toughest. When applying, you’ll need to provide: proof of income of everyone you’ve ever met; an insurance policy provided by all globally recognized insurance companies; the mechanical and technical specifications of the aircraft you’re flying into the country on; a 3D model and architectural blueprint of where you’ll be staying; invitation letters from all 44 million Algerian citizens, and an anticipatory second-by-second log of what you plan to do during your trip. Additionally, if you’ve ever visited, spoken to or set eyes on somebody who has visited Israel, or ever sang the ‘Mazeltov! (La Haim)’ bit in the Black Eyed Peas ‘I Gotta Feeling out loud, be aware that this makes you officially ineligible for an Algerian visa and your application will categorically be denied.

Good luck!
