Rabat – Morocco held a second training session ahead of their Afcon 2017 qualifier against Libya on June 12th in the Grand Stadium of Agadir.
The session was marked by the presence of AC Milan’s wonderkid Hachim Mastour who was called up by Badou Ezzaki for the Moroccan squad.
Mastour, who has become a household name in Europe thanks to his eye-catching performances, has quickly got along with his new teammates.
The 16-year-old Italy-born player appeared relaxed and happy playing next to other players in the Morocco squad, especially those who play, or played, in Italy’s Serie A.
Those included Medhi Benatia (Udinese-Roma), Omar El Kaddouri (Torino), Achraf Lazaar (Palermo), Zouhair Feddal (Parma) and Houssine Kharja (Inter, Fiorentina, Roma, Sienna).
He is expected to be part of the Moroccan national team lineup for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Libya.
If the youngster, who has already played for the Italy’s Under-16, plays even one minute at senior level for Morocco, he won’t be eligible to represent Italy in future.
