Soudani to start against Senegal

26 January 2015, 15:26

Malabo - Algeria head coach Christian Gourcuff will depend on the Dinamo Zagreb striker, El Arbi Hillel Soudani, to replace Sporting Lisbon Islam Slimani in Tuesday's Afcon crucial game against Senegal, SuperSport reports.

The Desert Foxes will miss the service of Slimani due to injury after he picked up a muscle problem in the first game against South Africa.

According to Algerian media the French coach will use Soudani from the start of the next match against Senegal after the striker has watched happenings at the Afcon from the bench in their first two matches.

Soudani has found it hard to win a starting place in the Algerian team since Gourcuff took the charge of the Desert Foxes last summer after the departure of former coach, Vahid Halilhodzic.

Media reports suggest that the Algerian head coach will leave out midfielder Medhi Lacen from the clash against the Teranga Lions of Senegal.

The Algerian delegation arrived in Malabo, venue of their must-win clash with Senegal, on Sunday.
