The Algerian selection with Atal


By: Manu Tournoux

While he has not played for Nice since October 1, Youcef Atal, who has played four times for Algeria since, will indeed make the CAN.

Suspended by the Aiglons and subject to a 10-month suspended prison sentence according to the indictment of December 18 for having relayed the video of a preacher hostile to Israel the day after the Hamas attack, the Côte d’Azur defender nevertheless retains the confidence of his coach.

While his judgment will be set for January 3, Youcef Atal was officially summoned this Friday by Djamel Belmadi to play the African Cup of Nations with the Fennecs from January 13.

The Algerian selection for CAN 2023:
Goalkeepers: Mandrea, Mbolhi, Benbot.
Defenders: Atal, Guitoun, Aït-Nouri, Larouci, Mandi, Tougaï, Bensebaïni, Touba, Belaïd.
Midfield: Bentaleb, Feghouli, Aouar, Chaïbi, Zerrouki, Boudaoui, Bennacer.
Attackers: Mahrez, Ounas, Amoura, Gouiri, Belaïli, Bounedjah, Slimani.
