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,[1] where Les Fennecs caused a sensation by defeating European reigning champions West Germany for their first world cup appearance.[2] 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.[3]
