They performed at great levels and knocked on the doors of the first team
The local team participating in the 2021 Arab Cup tournament in Qatar appeared at a great technical level, with the emergence of some players who can support the first team in the near future, to the point that some of them caused great embarrassment to the coach of the first team, Jamal Belmadi, before the date of the African Nations Cup 2021, the beginning of next year in Cameroon.
Some of the players participating in the Arab Cup excelled even the first options of Jamal Belmadi in the first team, and confirmed that they would be future trump cards for the “desert warriors”, at a time when the Arab World Cup was a revival of the career of the Qatari Al Rayyan club star, Yassin Brahimi, who sent strong messages. Belmadi to return him to the first team, amid a wide consensus of followers and fans.
Yassin Brahimi presents high levels in the Arab Cup 2021 (he was chosen as the man of the match twice), reminding the Algerians of his beginnings with the “Greens” and his golden period when he was a player in the Portuguese club Porto, and the Qatari Al Rayyan star appeared in the dress of the most prominent star in the local team along with Blaili, What made the followers nominate him to return to the first team after a continuous absence for more than a whole year, as his last match was with the November 2020 battalion in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Zimbabwe, after which he lost 11 matches with the first team, and Belmadi cannot overlook what he offers Brahimi is currently, and will undoubtedly return him to the first team during the upcoming African Nations Cup, especially since CAF allows teams to include 30 players during this competition, and Brahimi will be a golden alternative, whether for Youssef Blaili on the left side or in other options in the middle of the field.
On the other hand, the Tunisian Esperance defender, Mohamed Amine Togay, was one of the most prominent discoveries of the Arab Cup in Qatar for the Algerians, as the young defender (23 years) presented great levels in the middle of the defense, and even surpassed Mehdi Taherat, one of Jamal Belmadi’s important options in the national team. First, Togay played three main matches, during which he presented high levels, specifically against the national teams of Egypt and Morocco, taking advantage of Jamal Belamri’s injury, and many observers believe that Togay really deserves a note from Jamal Belmadi, especially in light of the decline in Jamal Belamri’s levels and the absence of ready alternatives in the position of defender. In the middle, as the left back of the Tunisian Esperance club, Elias Sheti, outperformed another option that regularly attends the “greens” camps, Ayoub Abdellawi, at a time when everyone expected that the Saudi Ettifaq club star would kidnap the main player in the Arab Championship with the local team. , had a different opinion, as the latter succeeded in confirming his eligibility to participate as a key player in the Arab Championship, with evidence that he played all the matches so far, and demonstrated his ability to be one of the contenders for the position of the alternative to the German defender Borussia Monchengladbach, Rami B. I am seventy, in the first team, and without a doubt, Jamal Belmadi will not lose sight of this, and he is the one who follows the Arab Cup very carefully.
In addition, the defensive midfielder, Sofiane bin Dabka, the star of the Saudi Al-Fateh club, is one of the most prominent keys to playing Majid Bougherra during the Arab Cup, and he was one of the best players during the four matches played by the “Desert Warriors” so far, thanks to his great return and extraordinary physical effort. , which made the followers nominate him to be included in Jamal Belmadi’s future options, despite the fierce competition in the middle of the Algerian national team’s field, which includes strong names, in the form of Ismael Bennacer, Ramez Zerrougui and Haris Boukbla, the mother of the promising youth club Belouizdad star, Houssemeddine Mriziq, (21 years old). , He is classified as the most prominent discovery of the Arab Championship, thanks to his great level that exceeds his age, as the promising player provided a good return in the position of the central defender and with high spherical glimpses regarding the method of taking the ball out and financing the attacking players, which made the Algerians and followers expect him to have a promising future with the first team, Even if it was not related to his immediate entry into the accounts of Jamal Belmadi, in the presence of names such as Zerrougui and Ben Nasser in his position, but everyone believes that he is a 5-star alternative and a future player if he continues on this path.
Towards making changes in the green line of defense against Qatar
It is expected that the national voter, Majid Bougherra, will make some technical adjustments to his squad, in anticipation of facing the Qatar national team in the semi-finals of the FIFA Arab Teams Championship, which will be held at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha.
The defensive mistakes made by the Greens’ defense during the match against Morocco in the quarter-finals, which resulted in goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi netting, will be considered naive goals from two fixed balls in sensitive periods of the match, as the team’s defense rock Tokai and his companions failed to maintain the progress they made over the The Atlas Lions team on two occasions for long periods, and fell into the same trap twice by committing mistakes close to their defense area, allowed Morocco to take advantage of two indirect violations, and exploit them in the best way, in front of the weakness recorded by the line of defense of the national team in dealing with these situations.
The “Magic” and his technical staff will work to address these errors and remedy the weaknesses of the national team in dealing with indirect violations, which pose a great danger to Rais M’Bolhi’s goal, especially since the next opponent of the Greens, Qatar, is well mastered in executing violations in light of the presence of tall players in its ranks who have proven On their superiority and efficacy in high bilateral conflicts.
Perhaps the most prominent solutions that the national coach, Majid Bougherra, will resort to, in front of the Qatari Annabi, are to make minor adjustments to the defense axis, whether by relying on the duo Jamal Belamri and Mehdi Taherat, who are distinguished by defensive ferocity and high rise, compared to Toqai and Badran, who showed a lack in this aspect, despite Their strength and harmony are due to the fact that they play in the same club, Esperance Sportive de Tunis.
In the same context, it is also possible that the Magic will resort to a change in the defensive system by relying on an advanced defense in order to mitigate the defensive errors close to goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi, which was decisive in the last match against Morocco.
