Algerian international goalkeeper Mustafa Zaghba, the star of the Saudi Damak club, continues to provide great levels in the Saudi Premier League this season, according to followers and analysts, categorizing him as the best goalkeeper so far in terms of numbers and levels provided, at a time when he did not get any chance with the Algerian national team.
Zaghba has participated in intermittent periods with the Algerian national team since Jamal Belmadi took over his training in the summer of 2018, but he has not participated in any official match so far, and contented himself with participating in a friendly match in December 2018 against the Qatar national team in Doha, which ended with the victory of “The Greens”. A goal without a response (0-1).
Zaghba is considered the number one goalkeeper this season in the Saudi Premier League in the language of numbers, as the “Football Statistics” platform published on “Twitter” a distinguished number for the Algerian goalkeeper, who ranked first in the guards who saved the most shots in the Saudi League with 94 saves in 22 games, outperforming senior Foreign league guards, led by the main goalkeeper of the Algerian national team and the Ettifaq, and Wahab Rais Mbolhi.
Wahab Rais Mbolhi ranked seventh in this classification, with 63 saves in 22 matches, away from Zaghba with 31 complete saves, a number that highlights the clear superiority of the former Algerian club ES Setif goalkeeper, but without this superiority guaranteeing him a chance with the “Muharibi” team. Sahara”, who remained on the bench in the double World Cup playoff against Cameroon last March.
Zaghba was not limited to all Saudi league guards in this statistic, but ranked first as the highest rated guard, according to the “Sport 360” website in its Saudi version, with a score of 7.27 out of ten, ahead of Al-Fayhaa goalkeeper, Serbian Vladimir Stojkovic, and Al-Faisaly guard, Saudi. Mustafa Malaika, and the goalkeeper of the Federation, the Brazilian Marcelo Grohe.
Many analysts expect that Zaghba will get his chance in the Algerian national team, and snatch the position of the main goalkeeper from Wahab Rais Mbolhi, who has controlled this position since the 2010 World Cup, especially after Algeria was excluded from qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, and the “greens” need to inject blood. New.
Despite Zaghba’s relatively advanced age (31 years), analysts confirm that he deserves a strong note from Jamal Belmadi, especially in light of the decline in the levels of Mbolhi, who remained Algeria’s first goalkeeper for 12 years, during which he participated in 89 international matches, and was crowned during that period in the Nations Cup. Africa 2019 and the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup, and twice participated in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and 2014 in Brazil (qualified for the second round during the World Cup in Brazil).
