Under manager Herve Renard, Morocco’s national team is poised to beat the Cameroonian national football team.
Rabat – During a press conference held Thursday in Mohammed V Stadium, Renard said he does not fear Cameroon and that the essential for him is to drive Morocco to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) as part of the objectives set by the president of the Moroccan Royal Football Federation (FRMF), Fouzi Lekjaa.
Renard did not miss the opportunity to warmly congratulate Mehdi Benatia for his performance with Juventus. Pointing to his return to the national team, Renard said that “his comeback to the team is very important.”
For his part, Benatia expressed joy for being called up, emphasizing that his absence during Morocco’s last matches is due to his physical condition, which he describes as “not good.”
However, Benatia reassured Moroccans that he is doing well and ready to play with the national team.
Tonight’s match represents an opportunity for Morocco to gain ground in the competition and for Renard to prove that he is capable of piloting the Atlas Lions to new heights and achievements.
The match will surely be a nail-biter, given the Moroccan team’s weak performance during its double face-to-face against Comoros. This means that they must win the match in order to secure the three points.
The second fact is that Cameroon is considered as a knot for the Atlas Lions, as they have never won against them.
