Morocco World Cup 2022 squad list released

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how head coach of the Moroccan national football team, Walid Regragui has named 26 players for the forthcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

All is now set for the global showpiece, as the North African side ended their warm-up matches with a 0-0 draw against Paraguay in Spain.

They head to Qatar as the 22nd best team in the world and the second-best team from Africa, with reining AFCON champions Senegal ranked 18th in the world and number one on the continent.

Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech returns to the squad, and the 29-year-old will be saddled with the responsibility of getting the goals at the Mundial.

Previously, Ziyech fell out with former coach Vahid Halilhodzic and announced his international retirement in February.

Halilhodzic had said his reason for dropping Ziyech was that the winger faked an injury and displayed 'unacceptable behaviour'. However, the new manager has recalled him.
