The new national coach of Algeria, Djamel Belmadi, the bureaucratic process has begun in the Algerian soccer federation to summon the Racing Santander goalkeeper Luca Zidane with the absolute team, local press reported today.According to the prestigious newspaper Echouruk, the technician met with the son of Zinedine Zidane before the outbreak of the crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic and the goalkeeper gave his approval to process the application for an Algerian passport based on the roots of his family in the North African country.“The Green Foxes of the Desert”, one of the most powerful teams in Africa, they had already tried other times to attract the Real Madrid keeper – transferred to Racing this season – but according to Algerian media and sources close to the federation consulted by Efe, it has been Belmadi who has achieved the final push.Algeria’s idea is that Luca Zidane could be ready for the World Cup qualifiers in the fall and for the African Cup of Nations (CAN) scheduled for next January in Cameroon, in which he will defend the title obtained in the last edition. The 21-year-old goalkeeper has already been selected at a young age by France, the team with which the U-17 European won, and will have to compete for the position with the holder, Raïs M’Bolhi (Al-Ettifaq – Saudi Arabia) and his eternal alternate, Azzedine Doukha (Al-Raed – Saudi Arabia), both 33 years old.Algeria, a country with a long tradition in the World Cups, tries to recover its potential after the elimination in the 2014 World Cup, in which it managed to go to the second round, plunged it into an acute political and results crisis that caused it to parade through the bench to a dozen coaches, including the Spanish Lucas Alcaraz, until the arrival of Belmadi.Engaged in a process of reconstruction and rejuvenation, new and veteran stars like Manchester City winger Riad Mahrez play in their ranks, the Betis central defender Aïsa Mandi, the midfielder Yacine Brahimi (Al-Rayyan SC – Qatar), playmaker Nabil Bentaleb (Newcastle) or striker Islam Slimani (Monaco).
Tomorrow’s game Points standing – 8:40 p.m.: Harbour View vs UWI FC – Harbour View Stadium. TODAY’S GAMES With the Red Stripe Premier League entering round three in the preliminary stage, another interesting set of games are scheduled. Among the upcoming fixtures will be a clash between fierce rivals Arnett Gardens and Tivoli Gardens today at the Anthony Spaulding Complex, starting at 6 p.m. Defending champions Arnett are on a high with an unbeaten run of seven games. The ‘Junglists’ have won six and drawn once in that run. They are currently in second position on 42 points, just one behind leaders Portmore United. On the other hand, Tivoli Gardens are in the relegation zone in 11th position on 19 points in the 12-team league. Despite the huge gap that Arnett hold over Tivoli, whenever the teams meet, a tough game is expected. Arnett must be very high on confidence following a gutsy 2-1 win against Portmore United last Monday night. However, Tivoli’s woes continued as they were edged 1-0 by UWI FC in their last fixture. IMPRESSIVE FORM While Arnett are highly favoured to win the game and continue their impressive form, Tivoli will be looking for points to move out of the drop zone. Arnett, under the guidance of coach Jerome ‘Jerry’ Waite, have scored a league-high 34 goals from 22 games and will be gunning to add to this at home. The diminutive striker Kemal ‘Tull’ Malcolm is the team’s leading marksman with 10 goals. He should receive good support from Newton Sterling, Vishinul Harris, Leon Strickland, captain Oneil’ Bigga’ Thompson, and Ranike Anderson – who moved from Tivoli to Arnett during the transfer window. Tivoli have certainly struggled this season with only five wins, four draws and 12 losses. With Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey back in charge after he resigned in 2014, his first order of business is to turn around the fortunes of the club he guided to championship honours in the past. Players such as AndrÈ Morgan, Junior Flemmings, Jermaine Johnson and Rohan Reid will have to step up in order to get a positive result. In other games, Boys’ Town should get the better of last-placed Rivoli United; Portmore United are expected to bounce back against Humble Lion; Waterhouse will have a tough encounter against Montego Bay United; and the Reno FC – Cavalier encounter could go either way. – 3 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Rivoli United, Barbican Complex. – 3 p.m.: Reno vs Cavalier, Frome Complex. – 5 p.m.: Humble Lion vs Portmore United, Effortville Community Centre. – 6 p.m.: Waterhouse vs Montego Bay United, Waterhouse Stadium. – 6 p.m.: Arnett Gardens vs Tivoli Gardens, Anthony Spaulding Complex.

Sushil Kumar got injured during his practice session on Friday just a few hours ahead of his team Delhi Sultan’s Pro Wrestling League (PWL) tie against Haryana Hammers.Sushil had not played Delhi’s first tie of the season against Mumbai Maharathi because he was blocked and Mumbai won 54-41, where Sakshi Malik played a starring role.Sushil was set to take the mat on Friday at the Siri Fort Sports Complex but injured his knee earlier on Friday and has been advised a two-day rest by the doctor.ALSO WATCHSushil will be replaced by Parveen, who won the bronze medal at the Senior National Championship 2017, for the Friday match in the 74 kg category.The two-time Olympic medallist was picked by Delhi Sultans for a massive 55 lakh, the highest-ever amount in the history of PWL.Sushil has recently been muddled by controversies relating to the scuffle between him and Parveen Rana.Rana lost to Sushil in the Commonwealth Games selection trails a few days ago and after that, news broke out that the supporters of both the wrestlers were involved in a massive brawl, where Rana was also manhandled and his brother suffered a head injury.A few days ago, Rana alleged that Sushil personally instigated his supporters.Rana also claimed he was threatened before the Nationals, and the walkover he gave to Sushil was because he was struggling with an injury.”During the Nationals I was threatened. I don’t know who was behind it but a few men came to me and threatened me. I gave the walkover because I was injured. I knew I had CWG trials a few days later and I wanted to focus on that,” Rana said.advertisementThe 25-year-old grappler acknowledged that such an unprecedented incident, involving two wrestlers and their supporters, had never occurred before in India.”I have fought against Narsingh, I have lost to him twice and I have won once. But no such thing happened. It’s a sport, the best person should win and be given a chance.”The two grapplers are set to clash on January 21 when Rana’s Veer Marathas take on Sushil’s Delhi Sultans in the PWL.”It’s not a do or die game for me as I have just started my career. I have many more bouts to play. I have just started, I want to win medals for the country,” Rana said.The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) had issued a notice to Sushil as a part of its investigation into the fracas that followed the selection trials.(With inputs from ANI)
