Saïd Benrahma named in Algeria selection

Attacker included for game against Benin next week

1 September 2019

Saïd Benrahma has earned his third Algeria call-up as the reigning Africa Cup of Nations Champions take on Benin in a friendly next week.

The Desert Foxes play their first match since becoming African champions at the Stadium Mustapha Tchaker in Blida on Monday 9 September, kick-off 9pm local time.  

Saïd made his Algeria debut in September 2015 but then had to wait until last March to earn his second cap. He was named in Algeria's initial squad for this summer's Africa Cup of Nations but pulled out due to injury. 

The 24-year-old made his first start of the new season yesterday during our 3-0 win over Derby County, having featured three times off the bench previously.  

The attacker was in red-hot form during his first season in England, scoring ten goals and contributing 15 assists in 38 appearances.
