[World Cup] Key Player Review: Algeria – Sofiane Feghouli

A consistently impressive performer for Valencia over the past couple of seasons, Feghouli has impressed at club level with his boundless energy, his counter-attacking threat and his ability to make late runs into the opposition’s penalty area.

Playing alongside talented midfielders, others take charge of creativity.

At international level, however, Feghouli plays a more refined role, underlined by the fact he wears No. 8 for his club but No. 10 for Algeria.

He’s charged with directing Algeria’s play and providing a link between a functional midfield and the two forwards, left-sided Al Arabi Soudani and striker Islam Slimani.

For Algeria to succeed, Feghouli must play well.
