Uncapped midfielder Ahmed Kashi has been called up to play for Algeria at the African Nations Cup finals, the country’s official news agency said on Thursday.
The 26-year-old French-born player from FC Metz is expected to be named as a replacement for the injured Medhi Abeid of Newcastle United, said the Algerie Presse Service. The Algerian Football Federation was yet to confirm the call-up.
Algeria were the first of the 16 countries competing at this month’s tournament in Equatorial Guinea to name their final squad but still have a week to make changes before the deadline for the submission of the 23-man selections.
