MOST COMMENTED

[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Algeria is paying the price for the transgressions of its players in the 4-0 loss to Egypt in the semifinals of the Africa Cup of Nations. Portsmouth outside back Nadir Belhadj, one of the key Desert Foxes, will miss the opening 2010 World Cup game against Slovenia after being given a two-match ban for his red card. Goalkeeper Faouzi Chaouchi was banned for three games for headbutting referee Bonaventure Coffi Codjia during the game against Egypt, though he is unlikely to be part of the Algeria squad for the World Cup.

Belhadj and Chaouchi both have served one match of their suspensions after sitting out the third place game at the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.

Coffi Codjia has been indefinitely suspended for failing to take any action against Chaouchi for the incident. (Chaouchi was later red carded in the game, one of three Algerians to be sent off in the rematch of their World Cup playoff against Egypt.)
