Belloumi wants to see fresh foxes

First Rabah Madjer and now fellow Algerian legend Lakhdar Belloumi has lent his voice to the criticism after Algeria's performance against Ghana.

Belloumi wants coach Christian Gourcuff to inject new faces in to their last group match against Senegal on Tuesday.

The Desert Foxes are yet to secure qualification to the quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations after they lost 0-1 to Ghana last week.

Belloumi says the Frenchman to make changes to the starting line-up against Senegal.

"Gourcuff should depend on new faces in the next match (against Senegal) after the starting squad showed they don't have enough ability to score goals, and I don't know the reason (El Arbi) Soudani and (Abdelmoumene) Djabou are not used by the head coach," Lakhdar said.

"Our national team have a big problem too, the technical staff don't have enough former international players to give advice to Gourcuff especially about African football. The Frenchman takes all the decisions by himself and that is not right.

"Gourcuff should do more psychological work before the last match against Senegal on Tuesday as we have one choice and it's to win. The players should know that they are playing for Algeria and the nation waits on them to qualify."
