Player to watch: Serhou Guirassy

Serhou Guirassy is coming off the best season of his career, as he scored 28 times in as many Bundesliga games, firing VfB Stuttgart to a second-placed finish in Germany's top flight.

The former Lille forward has been in sensational form these past few months, scoring 10 times in his last 11 matches across all competitions. However, while he featured at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, Guirassy was unable to score for Guinea.

As a matter of fact, the 28-year-old last scored for his country in October last year, so it'll be interesting to see how he fares against Algeria on Thursday.
