A promising goalkeeper is knocking on the door of the Algerian national team. This is Anthony Mandrea, a young goalkeeper from club Angers (Ligue 1, France) who dreams of following in the footsteps of his famous elder Rais M’bolhi.
Of an Algerian mother, the Angers goalkeeper (Ligue 1, France) said in an interview with specialist Algerian site La Gazette du Fennec that he represents Algeria. would be a nice thing” for him and her” Family “.
Possible reinforcement for the EN cages? ” I find it very flattering he answered. ” I really appreciate that and I hope that one day it will happen ‘ he added while showing his willingness to respond to a Green Party subpoena.
” If they call me, I will definitely be there. It’s an honor and a pride if I can be a part of it one day said Mandrea, who has ties to Algeria through her mother, who is originally from Chlef.
When asked if he had already been approached by the Algerian Football Federation (FAF), he said no. On the other hand, USM Alger’s Anthony Mandrea has been approached about former international defender Antar Yahia, who held the position of general manager of the Algiers club before being sacked.
Rejuvenation of the national team
” He had expressed an interest in bringing me to Algeria. We (Mandrea and her agent) were not against it. On the contrary, because I was close to the end of my contract anyway ‘ added the Angers goalkeeper, stating that there had never been any offers from the Usmists.
On Sunday against Nantes, Mandrea pulled out all the stops and the French newspaper l’Équipe praised him in a very praising article on Monday. ” Anthony Mandrea, author of six saves including several of very high class, allowed Angers to end Sunday’s draw in Nantes (1-1). ‘ the team wrote, giving it a score of 8/10.
“ For his fourth game in a row (as a starter), Anthony Mandrea managed a near-perfect game “Making six crucial saves is something the sport adds on a daily basis. The young Franco-Algerian goalkeeper was voted best goalkeeper of the 32 by the teamand Matchday of the French Ligue 1.
At 25, Anthony Mandrea represents a good option to succeed Raïs M’bolhi (36) to keep goals for the national team.
National coach Djamel Belmadi or his successor, since the former player from Olympique de Marseille has not yet decided on his future at the top of the Greens, must probably think of M’bolhi’s successor as part of the failed project Reconstruction of EN for the World Cup to qualify in 2022.
In order to prepare for qualifying for the next World Cup in 2026, the rejuvenation of the Green squad, which today consists mainly of players in their 30s (Mahrez, Slimani, Benlamri, M’bolhi, Feghouli, Belaili, Mandi, Guedioura), is essential to avoid another failure in the race for the world championship.
