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.

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.
