The Algeria national football team represents Algeria in international football and is controlled by the Fédération Algérienne de Football (FAF), the governing body for football in Algeria.

The FAF was founded in 1962, became a member of FIFA in 1964, and a member of CAF in 1964. The Algeria Ligue Professionnelle 1 Nedjma (sponsored by Kuwaiti telecommunications company Nedjma), formerly known as Championnat National de Première Division, is the top division of the Fédération Algérienne de Football, and was created in 1962 when Algeria became an independent nation. Since then, Algeria's top clubs have been JS Kabylie with 17 championships, and MC Alger with 7.

Algeria is one the most successful football teams in Africa. Les Fennecs (the Desert foxes) won the African Cup of Nations only one time in 1990, and they will appear in their fourth finals after previous tilts in 1982, 1986 and 2010. Les Fennecs  has a new generation of talents, such as Sofiane FeghouliIshak Belfodil and Saphir Taider, and possesses individual talents capable of wreaking havoc in attacking areas.
