Algeria – Algerian international goalkeeper Azzedine Doukha was summoned to the national football squad for the match against Gambia scheduled for September 8 in Banjul, counting for Day 2 (Gr.D) CAN-2019 qualifiers, announced on Friday its Saudi club Al-Raed (Div.1) on its official Twitter account.
"The technical staff of the Algerian team summoned goalkeeper Azzedine Doukha for the internship before the period from 3 to 11 September. We wish him good luck, "said the club in a Tweet.
The last appearance of Doukha (32 years) in the national jersey was on November 17, 2015 during the big victory won in Blida against Tanzania (7-0) in the second leg of the second qualifying round of the World Cup 2018
The announcement of Al-Raed comes after the one made by the other Saudi formation of Al-Ittifak, announcing the return of the porter Rais M'bolhi in the Greens, for the trip to The Gambia. M'bolhi, whose last appearance with the selection dates back to October 2017, was summoned for the last two friendly tests played last June against Cape Verde (3-2 loss) and Portugal (3-0 defeat) under the guidance of former national coach Rabah Madjer, before declining the convocation.
The full list of players called for the match against Gambia by new coach Djamel Belmadi, who has committed for four years with the Algerian Football Federation (FAF) to replace Rabah Madjer, is expected for weekend.
The Greens will be regrouping from September 3rd, before flying to Banjul on September 6th aboard a special flight. During the first day of qualifying for CAN-2019 in June 2017, Algeria won in Blida against Togo (1-0).
