Belgium want Algeria game in June 2020

The Algerian national team are in talks with Belgium for a potential international friendly match in June 2020, DZ Football understands.

Roberto Martinez’s side are looking for a top level friendly opponent forJune 2020 as there is a slot for a friendly before Euro 2020 kicks off for the Red Devils, and they want to face a side that is not European.

Algeria have also been in negotiations with Italy and Brazil as they look to test themselves against some of the best sides in the world.

The fixture would take place at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, meaning a predominantly Belgian crowd. Belgium faced Algeria at the World Cup in Brazil back in 2014 in the group phase. Algeria led thanks to a penalty from Sofiane Feghouli but ultimately lost the game 2-1.

Algeria recently defeated Colombia 3-0 in Lille which is very close to Belgium geographically so the crowd would be a lot more mixed. Algeria have not faced a European side since losing 3-0 to Portugal in Lisbon under Rabah Madjer back in summer 2018.

Algeria have not lose a game since October 2018. Follow all the Algerian football news in English with DZ Football.
