Marrakech – Morocco’s team of the 8-ball pool won the trophy of the world championship, which took place in Blackpool, England.
Morocco achieved the victory after beating the host country in the final (8-4).
Morocco’s squad performed impressively in the 2014 world championship, after they won Scotland in the play off (10-11), and Australia in the semi-final (8-7).
“Before we came to the tournament our objective was to reach the semi-finals. Then, we won match after match and got to the semi-finals.” said Achraf Faraj, member of Morocco team and President of the Moroccan Pool Players’ Association, to www.wepf.org, the official website of the world 8-ball pool federation.
“Then when we beat Australia we knew we could crack the final as well. England was the best team here but we knew we could beat them,” Faraj added.
