Algeria revealed their preliminary squad of 30 players on Monday, becoming the second African nation (after Nigeria) to do so.
There were few surprises in the side, although there was no place for highly-regarded Internazionale forward Ishak Belfodil.
There was a first call-up for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez, while Aissa Mandi and Nabil Bentaleb retained their spots after making their debut in the friendly match against Slovenia.
Ryad Boudebouz was re-called after an absence of over a year.
