Bastia midfielder Ryad Boudebouz, who has not featured for Algeria since the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, was named in coach Vahid Halilhodzic’s 30-strong provisional squad for the FIFA World Cup™.
Leicester frontman Ryad Mahrez is called up for the first time, but Livorno striker Ishak Belfodil failed to make the cut, although he remains on stand-by should Porto’s Nabil Ghilas not shake off injury.
