Normally featuring for Nottingham Forest when he isn’t suffering from a fractured eye socket, Adlène Guedioura earned himself a spot in the last Algeria squad.
Sitting out the first game against Benin, which his country won 2-0, the midfielder was called upon for the return fixture, and it didn’t go very well.
Using some statistics, Le Buteur point out the Nottingham Forest man was the ‘worst’ player on the pitch, ‘completely missing’ the game.
Losing eight balls in the middle of the park, Guedioura also committed the most fouls, won five out of 13 defensive challenges and only came out on top in two of his eight duels in the air.
Despite these poor stats, his manager never took him off, and Benin ended up winning 1-0, and it was the Forest man who lost goalscorer D’Almeida, unable to keep up with him when attempting to track back.
All in all, a day to forget for Guedioura, who was left on the bench by Aitor Karanka at the weekend in their 2-1 loss to Norwich in the Championship.
