We have no way of knowing if Slimani has any idea who Johnny Manziel is, but it certainly looks like he’s paying tribute to the Heisman winner, whether he knows it or not. Either way, Twitter loved it.
After three quick goals in the first half, Algeria certainly resembles a high octane Texas A&M offense.
