Algerian team: Benrahma finds colors and reassures Belmadi

Author of a double and a good performance against Norwich, Said Benrahma finds colors. He reassures Belmadi less than a month before the start of the qualifiers for the next CAN 2023 in Côte d’Ivoire.

Mute since March 20, Said Benrahma has gone through a terrible slump. Author of benefits far from expectations, he was the subject of several criticisms. Even the English press knocked him out, announcing him leaving once the current season was over, especially following his strained relationship with coach David Moyes.

It is on the ground that the Algerian international striker has silenced the detractors. Lined up among the starting line-up the day before yesterday afternoon, during the match between West Ham and Norwich, he was one of the great architects of the brilliant victory won with a final score of four goals to one. Indeed, he was the author of a double but also a good performance, before giving up his place during the last quarter of an hour of the match to his teammate Vlasic.

This can only allow him to regain some confidence. The native of Bethioua will have demonstrated to his trainer that he is there and that he is capable of regaining his best level. The latter should renew his attacker who will be called upon to confirm himself during the next meeting in the Premier League.

Benrahma was able to improve his statistics with 11 goals scored and 6 assists delivered in 48 games played in all competitions since the start of the current exercise. Note that this is his second double with the “Hammers” this season.

The player reassures Belmadi

Said Benrahma is one of the most competitive players in the national team, as he plays practically on a regular basis with West Ham. Better, he finally returned to the nets during the double scored against Norwish. This can only reassure the national coach Djamel Belmadi less than a month before the start of the qualifiers for the next CAN in Côte D’Ivoire, on the occasion of the reception of Uganda at the new stadium in Oran.

Only, the international striker will be called upon to confirm himself during the next meetings with his team. In the event that he continues to chain good performances and score other goals, it remains very possible for him to be aligned among the starting lineup during the match against Uganda in order to animate the offensive left wing of the national team. And this, to the detriment of Youcef Belaïli who is in the process of achieving a half-fig half-grape course with Stade Brestois.
