Invited to attend the opening ceremony of the 19th edition of the Mediterranean Games organized in Oran, the Algerian coach, Djamel Belmadi, did not leave the fans of the Algerian team hungry.
In a statement given to the media present when he arrived in Oran, coach Belmadi said he was happy for the city of Oran, “it is a joy to see such an event hosted by our country. The city of Oran deserves to organize these games. he says. Brand new stadium, hotel and sports infrastructure, the city of Oran is preparing to host the 2022 Mediterranean Games with a new face.
This is what inspires the Algerian coach and makes him consider prospects, “I hope we will play here very soon. Maybe the match against Niger would be the right occasion to see the national team in Oran. he adds.
Designated home of the Greens after the failure of Tchaker against Cameroon, the Olympic stadium in Oran did not finally host the match of the Algerian team against the Ugandan selection when the men of Belmadi in the 2023 African Cup qualifiers; a change of organization that occurred at the last minute to deprive the Greens of discovering the new building of Bir-El-Djir. However, the national coach does not lose hope and still plans to “perform” in Oran.
The path has only just begun
The first moments of the Oran stay of the Algerian coach, Djamel Belmadi, did not pass without raising questions relating to Belmadi’s project for his second term at the head of the technical bar of the Algerian team.
Asked about the potential arrivals during the next course of the Greens, the national coach did not hesitate to recall that: “the doors of the selection are open for all players who can bring an advantage to the Algerian selection. he says. A statement that could give a clue as to the potential arrival of certain binational players or even shed light on the case of OGC Nice striker Andy Delort.
For next September’s training camp, the Algerian team will face the Niger team twice. A double confrontation, the first of which will take place in Algeria on September 19. Nevertheless, the Algerian football federation leaves the suspense as to a possible confrontation in a friendly against a selection of world caliber.
