Algeria midfielder Mourad Meghni will miss the World Cup after failing to recover from a left knee injury.

The Algeria football federation says team doctors assessed the 26-year-old Meghni on Monday and decided that he needed surgery.

Meghni was one of several players in coach Rabah Saadane's preliminary squad with dual nationality who played youth internationals for France but switched allegiance after FIFA removed the age restriction last year.

Algeria will play England, the United States and Slovenia in Group C.
