"Brazil is the country of football," he told France Football on Thursday. "I will be very happy if they feature in our group. It will be formidable."

Bougherra helped Algeria clinch its fourth World Cup appearance after scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against Burkina Faso.

The World Cup draw will be held on Friday in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil.
