The right side of the Atlas Lions also highlighted the atmosphere within the group after the appointment of a new coach (Walid Regragui).

“I think we (the players) are well prepared to achieve great achievements in the coming period, in order to make the Moroccan people proud and happy of us, he underlined. Our ambition is to do better than in Russia and be the surprise team”.

Just as he was delighted that the players of the national team will be supported by a large audience of Moroccans from all over the world.
