Mahieddine Khalef (Arabic: ? ?; born January 17, 1944 in Mechra Bel Ksiri, Morocco) is an Algerian football (soccer) manager. Most notably he was the co-manager of the Algeria national football team in the 1982 FIFA World Cup, together with Rachid Mekloufi, where Les Fennecs caused a sensation by defeating European reigning champions West Germany for their first world cup appearance. Despite this achievement, Algeria went on to be eliminated at the end of the group stage, thanks to a convenient result for both West Germany and Austria in their fixture, in what is known as the Disgrace of Gijon.
