World Cup 2010 cover from Algeria ...

Merci Khemissi pour ce courrier de Algérie :-))) The 19th FIFA World Cup cover was sent from Setif, Algeria on 29 May. This cover took 17 days to reach Singapore. The stamps ("Coupe du Monde de Football Afrique du Sud 2010") had the preview sale on 8 and 9 May.

Algeria managed to qualify to two consecutive World Cups in 1982 and 1986. Algeria also won the Africa Cup of Nations once in 1990 when they hosted the tournament. In November 2009, Algeria beat Egypt in a World Cup qualification to secure a place at the 2010 World Cup.
