Rabat – Morocco’s national football team coach, Herve Renard, knows who he wants for his 23-man 2018 World Cup squad.
“The players who are here (Turin) will form the backbone of the 23 for the World Cup. However, there remain unfilled vacancies and the list will be difficult to establish,” said Renard during the press conference that preceded the game against Serbia.
The French coach added that he “decided to expand the list to anticipate the unanticipated,” adding that “a lot of things can happen between now and the World Cup.”
On Friday, the Moroccan national team won its first pre-World Cup match against Serbia, which took place in Turin.
The Atlas Lions will play their second friendly match against Uzbekistan next Tuesday in Casablanca.
When the tournament begins on June 14, the Atlas Lions will first battle Iran on June 15. The team will face Portugal in their second game on June 20, while the final first-round match for Morocco will be against Spain on June 25.
