The Desert Foxes of Algeria will play the friendly against Nigeria without the services of their France-based midfielder Hicham Boudaoui due to injury.
DZfoot, a top Algerian football outfit, revealed on Twitter.
However, there was no report of the nature of the injury that ruled Boudaoui out of the friendly with the Eagles.
The 22-year-old played for Nice last weekend when he was introduced into the game as a substitute in the 46th minute as his side 1-0 home loss to Angers.
According to the report, Boudaoui will now be replaced by Sofiane Bendebka, who plays for Saudi Arabia’s topflight club Al-Fateh.
