Yebda and Abdoun to play the next match against Rwanda
Algiers- The Franco-Algerian player, Hassan Yebda, will soon join the national football team. The midfielder of the Portuguese club of Benfica Lisbon has officially opted for the Greens last week, said source close to the FAF.
- The choice of the player comes after FIFA's decision to abolish any age limit (previously set at 21 years) to play for another selection. A measure that allows dual nationality, who had opted not before the age of 21, to play for the national team of their choice. This amendment was proposed by the chairman of the FAF, Mohamed Raouraoua.
Aged 25, Hassan Yebda should not participate in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers for the twin World and Africa Cup of Nations (CAN). But in case of the qualifications of Algeria, he will join the staff of the Greens. Three other players playing abroad have also opted for the national team, such as Abdoun and Moghni.
