Algeria coach Rabah Saadane has been given a two-year contract extension despite failing to record a World Cup win in South Africa.

The 64-year-old will lead the North African country in their qualifying campaign for the 2012 African Nations Cup finals, the Algerian Football Federation confirmed in a statement.

Saadane led Algeria to their first World Cup finals appearance in 24 years and steered the team to the semi-finals at this year's Nations Cup.

Algeria finished with one point from three World Cup matches, drawing with England and losing to Slovenia and the United States.
