Lucky11| FIFA World Cup: Morocco Full Squad Analysis
Who has Morocco's head coach Walid Regragui named to his final World Cup squad? Morocco will be competing in their sixth World Cup in Qatar.
They qualified for the first time in 1970 and had their best-ever result in 1986 when they advanced to the round of 16. Can they top that performance this time? That will not be an easy feat, as they have been placed in Group F alongside Belgium, Canada, and Croatia, which means they will face two of the 2018 semi-finalists.
Walid Regragui, the team's head coach, will be enthusiastic about their chances because they have some world-class players.
Yassine Bounou is Morocco's indisputable number one, having played every match in the country's World Cup qualification campaign as well as being first choice at Sevilla.
Munir Mohamedi, 33, is another experienced contender who can fill in between the posts if Bounou is unable to play. Ahmed Rega Tagnaouti will also join the squad in Qatar as a backup.
Regragui likes to set up his backline with a classic back-four.
There is no reason to be concerned about the full-back positions with Achraf Hakimi and Noussair Mazraoui in the squad. Meanwhile, the two most used centre-backs are Romain Saiss and Achraf Dari. Nayef Aguerd of West Ham and Jawad El Yamiq of Valladolid are the other alternatives at the back.
Regragui is known to try new things with his midfield. Sometimes he fields a three-man line, while other times there may be a bit of an overload towards the center of the park with five bodies.
In both cases, one player, Sofyan Amrabat, plays the same role. The Fiorentina player is renowned as a solid defensive midfielder who commands the coach's complete trust. Azzedine Ounahi, Selim Amallah, and Ilias Chair of QPR
The primary men in the front three are Hakim Ziyech, Sofiane Boufal, and Youssef En-Nesyri.
Chelsea's Ziyech, who reversed his international retirement to return under new manager Regragui, plays mostly on the right side, while Boufal plays on the left, with En-Nesyri as the target man.
Other promising players include Marseille's Zakaria Aboukhlal and Amine Harit, but there is no room for former Premier League star Adel Taraabt, who transferred to Al-Nasr in the summer. Munir El Haddadi, a former Barcelona star, has also been left out, despite being a regular for Getafe in La Liga.
Ittihad attacker Abderrazak Hamdallah, nicknamed 'The Executioner' by Moroccan fans, is perhaps the most surprising choice.
