Today will begin the course of the Greens at the CTN of Sidi Moussa, in anticipation of friendly games, against Mauritania, Mali and Tunisia.

The Algerian National Team’s internship to prepare for its next three friendlies ahead of Mauritania, Mali and Tunisia, respectively, will begin today. Although there is talk of a probable defection of the Mauritanian selection because of a cancellation of a flight by the Mauritanian airline to the Tunisian capital, the officials concerned do have a special flight for their national team and there is no doubt that the match scheduled for next Thursday would be played. Meanwhile, the 30 players summoned by the national coach, Djamel Belmadi, have been flocking to the National Technical Center (CNT) in Sidi Moussa since the end of last week with the prospect of playing the friendly matches against Mauritania respectively (the June 3), Mali (June 6), both in Blida, and Tunisia (June 11) in Tunis. So, and on reading Belmadi’s list, we will first note the absence of the now ex-captain of the Greens, Brahimi after no less than 8 years in the service of the Algerian selection. And what is also remarkable in this new expanded list of the national coach is the recall, not to say the return of several players. It is, moreover, the two players of OGC Nice, the defender Youcef Atal and the midfielder Hichem Boudaoui who had missed several meetings of the Greens, in particular during the qualifications of the CAN 2021, due to injuries. repeat. There is also the return of the African top scorer in French Ligue 1 this season, Andy Delort (Montpellier), who was absent in the two matches against Zambia and Botswana on behalf of the last two days of CAN qualifying. 2021. For his part, the Crocodiles de Nîmes Olympique striker Zineddine Ferhat, author of a good season with his club, despite a descent in French league 2, also finds again the ranks of the Greens. In addition, the coach of the Greens, also called on a novice and it is the goalkeeper of the Olympique de Médéa Abderrahmane Medjadel, who will celebrate his 23 years next July. On the other hand and among the names which circulated before the publication of this list, there are those of Aït Nouri, Boulhendi and Zedadka, but these three players are not among those summoned for these three friendlies. And still in terms of absentees, we will mention precisely the absence of Bennacer who plays at AC Milan for the simple reason that he has just undergone surgery. Moreover, he himself indicates this by declaring: “I had my foot operated on after the last match of the championship. See you next August for the new season. ” And according to the latest news, the two goalkeepers M’bolhi and Doukha who play in Saudi Arabia are expected for Tuesday. And they will be, therefore, the last latecomers for this regrouping of the Greens for the three friendly matches scheduled for this month of June. The same goes for Riyad Mahrez, who played and lost the Champions League final against Chelsea (0-1) on Saturday night. Moreover, the national coach, Djamel Belmadi, will host a press conference, precisely tomorrow in Sidi Moussa, an opportunity to discuss the next meetings of the Greens and the choice of the players summoned. These meetings are part of the Greens’ preparation program for the 2nd round of the qualifiers for the Qatar-2022 World Cup, the kickoff of which has been postponed from June to next September. The African champions will start at home against Djibouti, before moving to Ouagadougou to challenge Burkina Faso. Niger is the other resident of Pool A. Algeria will play the last four qualifying games in October and November. The play-offs are scheduled for March 2022. Finally, it is useful to recall that the national coach, Djamel Belmadi and the president of the FAF, Amara Charaf-Eddine, have agreed to organize these friendly matches, following the decision taken by the CAF Emergency Committee, in consultation with FIFA, to postpone the start of the second eliminatory round due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
