The qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup will begin in Africa in September. The Algerian national team will face its counterpart of Djibouti, for the 1st day, in group A. This meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 2, at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Blida. The objective of the Fennecs is the qualification to this Qatari appointment.
We now know the date of the first game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers for the Algerian selection. The captain Riyad Mahrez and his teammates will face Djibouti on Thursday, September 2, for the first day in Group A, at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Blida. In the run-up to this match, the Fennecs will be in assembly at the technical center of Sidi Moussa, from August 31.
They will also have to face Burkina Faso on the road. In principle, this meeting against the Stallions will take place on September 5, but not in Ouagadougou. After the last visit of the evaluation commission for the homologation of the stadiums of the African confederation of soccer, the stadium of 4-August has not been homologated by the continental soccer governing body.
Indeed, the evaluation committee has noted several deficiencies in the largest stadium in the capital of Burkina Faso, which should host the match of the second day of Group A between Burkina Faso and Algeria. Recall that last June, the match was also scheduled at the Lat Dior Diop Stadium in Thies, which is also not to international standards. Note that Algeria shares the same group with Niger, Burkina Faso and Djibouti.
