    30 players for Algerian women? that is too much; why not at least invite 21 players? with due respect Algerian women don’t play jack in soccer.

      You have to look beyond the Algeria game because we are building a team.
      Even at that you have to prepare adequately against any opposition.
      The national team has to play games with its best talents irrespective of opposition.

    At any level, Algerian teams are stubborn and wily. If you happen to be better than them, they will still use their tricks to try and frustrate you. The best thing is to beat the heck out of them, so that they fear you. A good opportunity for the local based players to show themselves. Hopefully, some new stars can emerge to compete with the established foreign based players.

  • Very good. Opportunity to get more young stars in female football.
