Overview

Team profile

Algeria

Algeria competed in the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix for the third time in 2015 and finished 27th, one place better than in 2014. The 2013 edition was their debut, when they were selected by the African Volleyball Confederation to represent the continent along with Kenya. They failed to win a set but the experience of the last three years should give them a decent footing this year. They did not qualify for the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Championship but came equal 21st in their only appearance six years ago at the World Championships in Japan in 2010.
 
The Algerians have shown that their ability to handle pressure is one of their main strengths. In 2008 they eliminated Kenya in the deciding match for a berth at the Beijing Olympic Games, and four years later the two teams squared off with a place at London 2012 on the line. Again the Algerians prevailed, and they finished equal 11th place in both Olympic tournaments. They were unable to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, however, after they finished fourth at the Women’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Puerto Rico from May 20 to 22.

Coach

Belacel Mohamed Amine

Belacel Mohamed Amine

Mohamed-Amine Belacel’s coaching career began with Algerian club ASUC Rija in 1995. The club won the national title in 1995 and reached two cup finals but lost to ASV Bejaia and MC Alger. In 2000, Belacel coached OC Alger before taking on the coaching role for the Algerian women’s team from 2003 to 2005. He then moved to Saudi Arabia from 2005 to 2010, before returning to Algeria to coach Blida in 2011 and PO Chlef in the 2012/13 season. Belacel replaced Faisal Gharzouli earlier this year to spearhead a younger Algerian squad, after several key players had left the team. Belacel’s task is to rebuild the team as Algeria prepare for the African Championship in 2017.
