A year later, Andy Delort (30) will again defend the colors of Algeria. Coach Djamel Belmadi called up the OGC Nice striker this Saturday for the September rally. The international with 11 caps (2 goals) will therefore be present for the two friendly matches that the Greens will play at home against Guinea on the 23rd, then against Nigeria four days later.
Andy Delort had withdrawn from the selection since October 2021 to focus on his club career, which caused him to miss the CAN in Cameroon. At the time, his decision caused Belmadi's incomprehension and anger who had gone so far as to speak of " lack of respect ".
Delort and Belmadi explained themselves
At the beginning of July, the scorer had opened the door to a return in the national team. “We discussed with the coach (Djamel Belmadi), had explained the former Montpellier. It was necessary. I am at his disposal again. I will soon know if I will find the other Niçois. The native of Sète will indeed accompany his partners Youcef Atal and Hicham Boudaoui.
