Caen goalkeeper, Anthony Mandrea, has been ruled out of Algeria’s international friendly against Nigeria, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Mandrea misses out due to injury, according to DZfoot.

Mandrea,25, won his first cap for Algeria in a friendly game against Iran in June and was hoping to add to his cap either against Guinea or Nigeria.

In his absence, Algeria coach, Djamel Belmadi, called up MC Alger goalkeeper, Farid Chaal, as his replacement.

Chaal had featured for Algeria’s youth teams before his invitation.

So far this season, the 28-year-old has conceded three goals in five games for Alger.

Meanwhile, the Super Eagles camp at the Marriott Constantine hit the hundred per cent mark on Wednesday afternoon with the arrival of goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and defender Ebube Duru.

Nigeria champions Rivers’ United left-back Duru was called up following injuries to a number of players including defender Leon Balogun, and joined the team on Wednesday after returning from Liberia where the Pride of Rivers reached the penultimate stage of this year’s CAF Champions League group phase.

Team captain Ahmed Musa and forwards Henry Onyekuru and Samuel Chukwueze are the others knocked out by injuries.
