Nabil Bentaleb makes Algeria World Cup squad

Bentaleb rewarded with World Cup berth

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Nabil Bentaleb has made Algeria's 23-man squad for the World Cup finals in Brazil later this month.



The 19-year-old became a regular under former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood last season, and was subsquently rewarded with a debut in the Algerian national side.

Having made Vahid Halilhodzic's original 30-man squad, reports had revealed that he could be axed from the final travelling setup.

However, he was retained as Crystal Palace's Adlene Guedioura failed to make the cut.
