Morocco sees hope from their stars

Morocco sees hope from their stars

Morocco depends on their stars for a successful World Cup bid, hoping they could last long in the competition. This squad is now on their sixth World Cup appearance which starts way back 1970, a manifestation of how strong they are as a team. This new World Cup edition brings new opportunity for Morocco to upset their opponent. They now depend on their stars to shed some light for their squad for another chance of winning the World Cup title.

Morocco sealed a ticket to the World Cup after they defeated the Congo side in a 4-1 victory. On that match, they know that they no longer have room mistake as it may lead them to lose their chance for the World Cup. This squad showed how important teamwork is if a team wants a successful campaign. Despite a disappointing exit in the AFCON, they were able to make amends, especially for their fans.

Their best finish was in 1986 where they were able to reach the Round of 16. After that, they went back to finishing their campaign until the group stage only. Since then, they are trying their luck to at least go past through the group stage for a better finish. Luckily for this squad, Hakim Ziyech plays for them. He is definitely a factor for the Moroccan side as he is expected to play creatively in the attacking area. Attacking is Ziyech’s expertise, so with his return, Morocco’s attack line can be seen as respectable by their opponents.

Aside from Ziyech, there are also several returnees and debutantes for this squad. This squad is expecting the come back of Bayern Munich’s Noussair Mazraoui, and Younes Belhanda who last played for his nation last 2019. As they hope to overturn their previous World Cup record, they want to make amends for their disappointing finish.
