The star Adlane Guedioura entered the accounts of Djamel Belmadi, the coach of the Algerian national team, in anticipation of the two clashes against Cameroon in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
On March 25, Algeria will host their Cameroonian counterpart on the decisive day of the World Cup qualifiers, before hosting him at their stadium, the Mustafa Chaker, four days later.
The Algerian national team is seeking a fifth nomination in its history for the World Cup final, after previously participating in the 1982, 1986, 2010 and 2014 editions.
In the following report, “Al Ain Sports” monitors 3 reasons that explain the reason for Belmadi’s insistence on having the services of the player nicknamed “the tank” in the two World Cup venues.
Remodel the dream team
The coach of the “Desert Warriors” seeks to reshape the “dream team” that made the appointment in the penultimate edition of the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
The Algerian team appeared in the continental competition, and managed to defeat all its direct competitors, specifically the teams from the Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Senegal.
Adlan Qaddoura sat out Cameroon’s 2021 edition due to his absence from the competitive scene in recent months, before making a strong comeback in recent weeks and grabbing the attention of English club Burton Albion.
Guedioura left a huge void in the “Greens” team, in light of the failure of Sofiane Bendabke and Arms Zerrougui to appear well in the center of the defensive midfield.
The Cameroon national football team is characterized by the physical strength of most of its players, which made it win a large number of duels during its matches in the World Cup qualifiers.
Djamel Belmadi plans to win the long-awaited physical battle against the “untamed lions” as it will be key to his bid for the 2022 World Cup.
Adlan Guedioura is one of the most outstanding tactical weapons of the Algerian national team, due to his extraordinary physical strength, in addition to his superior ability to win land and space conflicts.
Tactical bug fixes
The midfield was one of the main weaknesses of the Algerian team during the last final phase of the African Championship of Nations, which took place in Cameroon.
Jamal Belmadi seeks to remedy this tactical imbalance by using Adlan Guedioura, who has great experience, as well as his great understanding with the pair Ismail bin Nasser and Sofiane Feghouli.
It should be noted that Guedioura has made 61 appearances for the Algerian national team, during which he contributed 8 goals between industry and goals.
