Feghouli to explain Valencia absence

Sofiane Feghouli is expected to appear at Valencia’s training ground later today to explain his absence following the international break.

The Algerian failed to show up on Wednesday after helping his country beat Burkino Faso 1-0 in the their World Cup play-off second leg tie in Blida, a result that saw the African nation qualify for Brazil on the away goals rule after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

According to AS, Valencia officials, who have had no contact with the player and are unaware of the reasons for his non-appearance, hope to meet him in person and will then decide whether or not to discipline him.
