Houssem Aouar, midfielder for Roma, spoke to reporters at the airport upon his arrival in Algeria. Aouar reflected on his team’s recent match saying, “It was a challenging game. In Italy, there is a lot of intensity, aggression, and tactics. We won because we needed points. I am also pleased to have scored, so I arrive here in good form and hope to bring to the national team what I can do.” When asked if Mourinho’s words had motivated him, Aouar replied, “Yes, always.”
