Algeria star kicked out AFCON squad

Algeria midfielder Haris Belkebla has been kicked out of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations squad, according to head coach Djamel Belmadi.
 
The head coach of the North African side explained that it was in order to 'maintain discipline' in the squad ahead of the continental showpiece set to kick off in eight days time.
 
 
"The national team coach Djamel Belmadi has decided to exclude Algeria midfielder Haris Belkebla from the Africa Cup of Nations training camp," the AFF confirmed in an official statement.
 
"The coach's decision was to maintain discipline within the group, which he considers paramount."
 
Belkebla, 25, who plays his football for Ligue 2 said Brest has been disciplined after he went viral on social media exposing his backside on a live stream of an online game, Fortnite.
 
No replacement has been confirmed yet by the The Fennecs, who are in Group D alongside Tanzania, Senegal and Kenya.
