Algeria gets FIFA clearance for Ounas against Nigeria

SHARE

World football governing body, FIFA has cleared Franco-Algerian, Adam Ounas, to play for Algeria against Nigeria’s Super Eagles next month after they approved his change of international allegiance.
The Algeria Football Federation (FAF) announced: “Adam Ounas has officially opted to play for Algeria and his eligibility papers have been sent through to FIFA.”
Ounas represented France at Under 20 level, but he is now in line to make his debut for Algeria in the November 12 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in Uyo.
The 19-year-old Ounas, who has made a total of 29 appearances and scored five goals in Ligue 1 with Bordeaux, will be expected to assist the Algerians, who lost the midfield to Cameroon in Blida on Sunday.
Over the years, Algeria have swooped on players, who were born in France but have Algerian roots.
They include Adlene Guedioura, Majid Bougherra, Rais M’Bolhi, Yacine Brahimi and Sofiane Feghouli.
