Algeria will face South Korea in an international friendly, in May 2018, according to “Le Buteur”.
World Cup qualifiers Korea are looking to secure matches against teams they may face, in the finals, in Russia.
And with three North African teams having secured passage to the global tournament – Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco – Algeria represent a team with a similar style of play.
“Le Buteur” reports that the match against Korea is confirmed for May, though the final details must still be buttoned down.
It is expected to be played in a European country, with the Asian side set to camp in the continent ahead of the tournament, in Russia, in June and July.
On their side, “Panama” and “Costa Rica” – two further 2018 qualifiers – are also keen on meeting Algeria in friendlies, though these matches could be brought forward to the international window, in March.
It is worth mentioning that “the Fennec Foxes” and coach “Rabah Madjer”, will use the matches as preparation for the resumption of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, in the second half of 2018.
