Algeria have parted ways with their Spanish coach Lucas Alcaraz ahead of their final World Cup qualifying Group B game against Nigeria in Constantine in November.
Alcaraz, who took charge of the team in April following the resignation of Georges Leekens in February, was the fourth permanent coach to take charge in 13 months.
According to reports, the Spanish coach who signed a contract until 2019 has returned to Spain after bidding goodbye to his players.
Alcaraz recorded only one win in four games during his reign.
Algeria have been eliminated from qualifying for the World Cup and they are currently bottom of Group B on just one point after five games.
