Morocco coach Vahid Halihodzic has announced a 25-man squad for the upcoming double-header against Central African Republic in the framework of Cameroon’s 2021 total E-Series for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Bosnian tactician has called up the usual key players, including Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech, Inter’s Achraf Hakimi, and Sevilla’s duo Youssef En-Nesyri and Yassine Bono.
In addition to Zamalek forward Achraf Bencharki, Halihodzich decided to call up Raja’s Soufiane Rahimi after his remarkable performance with his club in the Total CAF Champions League and the Moroccan league “Botola”.
Samy Mmaee and Ayman Barkok, writers of notable performances during the international window last October, are in addition to defender Nayef Aguerd who missed the last call due to injury.
Faycal Fajr, Amine Harit and Adil Taarabt are all back in the group, but Oussama Tanane was not held.
The Atlas Lions will face Central African Republic on November 13 in Casablanca, with the reverse match in Douala, Cameroon, due to instability in the Central African Republic.
Morocco is currently the leading Group E with four points, of which the Central African Republic is more than third.
