Algeria win and Palestine

From an irate reader: "How can you not say a single word about Algeria's historic qualification to the knockout round? Its not just football game. Here is a tweet from the leading Algerian dedicating the victory to Palestine. There is a story to tell about Palestine and Algerian football. It's not the odd Palestinian flag that you find among Algerian fans - its everywhere. The players, the fans, and the Algerian people never miss an opportunity to raise the Palestinian flag in these events. Its a way of expressing solidarity and saying - this is your national team too. If you post pls do NOT quote me. Here is the link to the tweet."
