Algerian team: the Aouar file resurfaces

What if Houssam Aouar changes his sporting nationality by opting for Algeria? A possibility that cannot be ruled out. The Lyonnais midfielder has even started the procedures to play with the Greens.

The workforce of the Greens will know a reorganization in a progressive way. Djamel Belmadi summoned new elements during the current internship. They are Billel Omrani (CFR Cluj), Akim Zedadka (Clermont Foot), Billel Brahimi (OGC Nice), Yanis Hamache (Boavista) or even Abdelkahar Kadri (Courtrai) and Riyad Benayad (ESS). Others should follow suit from the next course next September. The national coach is already preparing the next generation.

Among the binational players expected to strengthen the Greens, we cite the name of Houssam Aouar. His presence in Algeria a few days ago, more precisely in the west of the country, where he even took part in a neighborhood match, opened the doors to speculation. But according to our colleagues from “Competition”, the master of the game of Olympique Lyonnais would consider changing his sporting nationality by opting for Algeria.

Aouar Fennec from September?

Legally, Houssam Aouar is still eligible with Algeria. Having only played one friendly match with France against Ukraine, he can always change his sporting nationality.

Indeed, the young Franco-Algerian midfielder will rely on the Bahamas law adopted in 2009. On the proposal of the former president of the FAF Mohamed Raouraoua, this law allows dual nationals to change sporting nationality in the event that , after passing the age of 21, they would never have played in an official match with another national team.

Consequently, for Houssam Aouar the problem does not arise. “He would have already started the administrative procedures with in particular the signature of commitment which will be sent soon to the FAF. The latter, in turn, will transmit it to FIFA in order to have this exemption which will allow him to play with the Algerian selection”. Reports our colleagues from “Competition”.

That said, Houssam Aouar could be Fennec from the next internship next September. In the event that his arrival materializes, it will undoubtedly be a major reinforcement for the national team. An attacking midfielder steeped in quality. Note that the player is coveted by the biggest European leaders, among others Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus.
