The FAF seeks players who do not want to wear the national colours
At a time when many Algerian players, born on the old continent and create the delight of the clubs in which they play in different European Championships, such Soltani in Holland, the striker Karim Benyamina, the legendary scorer of the German club of Berlin and many other top players, priority is given to players who were hesitant and created suspense several times before giving their agreement to wear the national colours, like Mehdi Lacen of the Spanish Club of Santander.
- Mehdi Lacen makes the subject of discussions these days, simply because he has not decided to join the selection of the country of his father who said that there was no link that binds him to the country to a million and half martyrs since he has never made a visit. The latter has spent his entire life in France. So, is it normal that the Algerian Federation sought the services of such players as it has already been rebuffed by people such as Ben Arbia who had waited until he realized he would not be convened in the French selection to join the Greens?
The same thing with Ibrahim Hamdani, the Glasgow Rangers player, who preferred to save time while he was wearing the colours of Olympique Marseille in the hope of being summoned by the French selection. Seeing nothing coming, he joined Algeria’s selection for which he has given nothing since he was old.
This happens when players tied to the land of their parents expressed their wishes to wear the colours of this country and they would play for no other country.
