Bordeaux forward Adam Ounas has been dropped by Algeria for a crucial World Cup qualifier in Nigeria due to injury.
According to Algeria Football Federation (FAF), the left-sided winger was injured at the weekend in a French Ligue 1 game and team doctors have now chosen not to risk him for the trip to Nigeria.
They have received his medical report from his club which suggested he will be out for a couple of weeks and as such there was no need to put his career on the line.
The exciting 19-year-old star scored five goals in 23 appearances for Bordeaux last season and this term he has made nine appearances in the league.
Ounas was named among 18 foreign pros for the November 12 clash in Uyo after he changed his international allegiance to Algeria as he had played for France at age-grade level.
FAF are yet to announce a replacement for the uncapped winger.
