The Algerian national team received a hero's welcome on Wednesday after their historic achievement in the knockout stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Despite the team losing 1-2 to Germany during the extra-time, their resilient, strong performance impressed many.
The team was greeted by the Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal, who also embraced the team’s Bosnian coach Vahid Halilhodzic.
In the video, the squad boarded a bus painted green and white with each player's name daubed in red – the three colours of the national flag.
Algeria was the only Arab country represented at the World Cup.
