Guedioura misses out once again

18 06 2010

Guedioura made his debut in Algeria's warm-up game against Ireland.

Despite Algeria losing their first group game to Slovenia, Adlene Guedioura has failed to grab a starting position for the game against England tonight.

Guedioura was a late sub in the first game and Algeria have copied England in dropping their keeper for the game.

Here are tonight’s teams:

England: James, Johnson, Carragher, Terry, Ashley Cole, Lennon, Barry, Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney, Heskey.
Subs: Green, Dawson, Crouch, Joe Cole, Warnock, Upson, Milner, Wright-Phillips, Defoe, King, Carrick, Hart.

Algeria: M’Bohli, Bougherra, Belhadj, Yahia, Kadir, Yebda, Lacen, Halliche, Boudebouz, Ziani, Matmour.
Subs: Gaouaoui, Mansouri, Ghezzal, Saifi, Djebbour, Bellaid, Laifaoui, Guedioura, Medjani, Mesbah, Abdoun, Chaouchi.

Referee: Ravshan Irmatov (Uzbekistan)

*Nenad Milijas was an unused substitute in Serbia’s suprising 1-0 win over Germany earlier.





Guedioura misses out on starting place

Guedioura played in Algeria's recent warm-up game against Ireland.

Wolves midfielder Adlene Guedioura has missed out o a starting place for Algeria in their opening World Cup game against Slovenia today.

I expected Gueds to line up in central midfield but obviously the Algerian’s don’t rate him as highly as we do.

Ah well, let’s hope Milijas starts later. Here’s the Algerian team in full.

Algeria: 16-Faouzi Chaouchi; 2 Majid Bougherra, 5 Rafik Halliche, 4 Antar Yahia, 3 Nadir Belhadj; 13 Karim Matmour, 19 Hassan Yebda, 8 Medhi Lacen, 15 Karim Ziani; 21 Fouad Kadir, 11 Rafik Djebbour.





Guedioura and Milijas book their place on the plane to South Africa!

Wolves had no players at the 2006 finals in Germany.

Wolves midfielders Adlene Guedioura and Nenad Milijas have been named in their respective countrys’ 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa.

This means there will be a trio of Wolves players at the finals with two expected to play for their countries. 

Guedioura recently played 90 minutes at right back for Algeria in Ireland whilst Milijas played the first 45 minutes of Serbia’s friendly against New Zealand last week. 

The USA arrived in South Africa two days ago and although he is in the squad, Marcus Hahnemann is unlucky to dislodge Tim Howard from the number one slot.
