Algeria have been boosted by the return of defender Mehdi Zeffane from injury ahead of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 22-year-old who has endured a long injury-plagued season returned to action for Lyon over the weekend.
The right-back has been included in Algeria’s squad for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations.
His return will serve as real boost to the squad and put an end to the worries of coach Christian Gourcuff.
Algeria will face Ghana, South Africa and Senegal in group C.
