Rais M’Bolhi, the veteran as well as experienced goalkeeper still is the first choice goal stopper in the side. He was the first pick goalie during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and he is once again expected to be given the gloves in Qatar. FC Metz man Alexandre Oukidja will be one of his alternatives. We also expect Abderrahmane Medjadel to be in the final squad.
According to our experts, Spanish la Liga side Villarreal CF man Aissa Mandi will be a certain starter along with Qatar SC Djamel Benlamri. As the later mentioned center back is playing at club level in Qatar, the host nation of the next World Cup, he will be familiar with the atmosphere. Bundesliga star Ramy Bansebaini who is a part of the Borussia Monchengladbach squad will be the first choice left back. Abdelkader Bedrane, Houcine Benayada, Youcef Attal; all of these guys will be useful options at the back.
In the middle, the two certain starters will be AC Milan star Ismael Bennacer as well as Galatasaray’s Sofiane Feghouili. The duo will be the key in the middle. The 31 years old Turkish league star has previously played in the English Premier League and Spanish La Liga for West Ham Utd and Valencia CF respectively. He is an experienced campaigner and will play a vital role for the side. Former Gunner and current AC Milan midfielder, Bennacer is a very talented young star and will definitely be an impactful player.
However, the most fearsome part of this Algerian side will be their attack. Their front line is simply world class. Riyad Mahrez is the most crucial player in the squad and currently is one of the best players in the African continent. The Man City sensation will be the man who will give nightmares to the opposition managers and defenders. French Ligue side Olympique Lyon’s senior forward Islam Slimani will be the first choice striker for the Greens. He is a very good striker and goal scorer. Saïd Benrahma has been in top form for West Ham United throughout the campaign. He has already shown his sparkling playmaking as well as scoring skills in the English top flight and will be a key player for Belmadi’s team.
