Hassan Yebda is aiming to have the last laugh on former Portsmouth team-mate David James at the World Cup.
The 26-year-old Benfica midfielder spent last season on loan at Fratton Park where he used to enjoy winding up the England shot-stopper.
Now he aims to score for unfancied Algeria against James when the two sides meet on 18th June in their Group C encounter.
He told The Sun: "When I was at Pompey, I spent a lot of time winding up David.
"I hope I'll be able to stick one past him when we play England at the World Cup. That way I'll be able to take the mickey out of him even more."
Despite a 3-0 friendly defeat to the Republic of Ireland last Friday, Yebda has warned England to underestimate Algeria at their peril, although he respects the threat of the Three Lions.
He added: "England have impressed me and have a great team, as do Spain.
"We have prepared well for South Africa and are still full of confidence despite losing to Ireland.
"We have three World Cup group games and will try to win them all."
Meanwhile team-mate Madjid Bougherra insists he will be fit to feature after suffering from a torn calf.
The Rangers defender said: "I'm ready to play again. My injury is a bad memory."
