The Greens and Mali
National football team is to play today a friendly against Mali at 6.30 pm on Rouen Stadium pitch in France. The match is to be the first for the Greens’ new coach Rabah Saâdane.
All nationals, who are performing in European leagues, have been present in the training camp headquarter in Novotel hotel, north of France, except Galatasaray’s injured defender Bouzid as well as Valenciennes FC winger Yacine Bezzaz for family reasons.
Furthermore, Algeria’s Football Association FAF president Mr. Hamid Hadadj has held yesterday morning a long meeting with players in the hotel conference room. The meeting meant to restore relationships with players after the resignation of former coach Cavalli.
Mr. Hadadj has carefully listened to the concerns of players and promised to set a new bonus scale as well as a new plan of action before entering competition phase scheduled for next February.
To recall the Greens are to discover their opponents in the both Africa and World cups qualifiers following a draw ceremony scheduled later this month.
