Leicester City striker Islam Slimani has been ruled out of Algeria's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clashes with Benin.

The Leicester City striker, on loan at Fenerbahce for the season, suffered an injury in a 0-0 draw with İstanbul Başakşehir on Sunday.  Algeria host Benin in Blida tonight, before travelling to Cotonou on Tuesday.

The Desert Foxes are level with Benin on four points at the top of Group D, three ahead of Gambia and Togo.

"Arrived injured in selection after a league match played with his club in Turkey, Islam Slimani will finally not be retained for the double confrontation of the national team against Benin on October 12 and 16. This is the decision made by the doctor of the national team, Dr. Benazieb Mohamed-Larbi after consultation with the coach, Mr. Djamel Belmadi," a statement from Algerian Football Federation said.
