Bastia midfielder Ryad Boudebouz, who has not featured for Algeria since the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, was named in coach Vahid Halilhodzic's 30-strong provisional squad for the FIFA World Cup™.
Leicester frontman Ryad Mahrez is called up for the first time, but Livorno striker Ishak Belfodil failed to make the cut, although he remains on stand-by should Porto's Nabil Ghilas not shake off injury.
Just five of the squad, which will be trimmed to 23 on 1 June - a day after a warm-up match against Armenia in the Swiss city of Sion - are based in Algeria.
Algeria have been drawn in Group H alongside Belgium, Russia and Korea Republic, and kick off their campaign against the Belgians in Belo Horizonte on 17 June.
