Algeria has trained ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with Zambia and Botswana om Thursday and Monday.
The African champions may give some of their youngsters a start, having already secured a berth in the tornament.
Twente midfielder Ramiz Zerrouki and RKC Waalwijk’s Ahmed Touba are amongst the 23-player squad.
Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez was not able to join his teammates for training due to the UK’s current travel restrictions and will miss both matches too.
OGC Nice defender Youcef Attal will also miss due to multiple injuries.
Algeria are heavy favourites to win the competition, which is scheduled to be played between January and February 2022, having not lost a match since October 2018.
