Hello Mr President!
Bouazza was part of the Algeria squad that qualified for the World Cup finals on Wednesday night with a 1-0 win over bitter rivals Egypt but the Blackpool midfielder will now miss the game on Saturday at the Madejski Stadium.
He will instead stay in Algeria and on Saturday will travel with the rest of the squad to meet the Algerian president at a civic reception and celebrate the countries qualification for the World Cup finals.
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway will now have to do without the winger as his 5th place side travel to Berkshire on a fine run of form, with the Royals still looking to end that long run at home without a win.
