Walid Regragui Calls Hamdallah to Morocco’s World Cup Team
Walid Regragui, the head coach of Morocco, today unveiled the 26 players who have been selected to compete in the forthcoming 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which prominently features Abderrazak Hamdallah.
When Walid Regragui revealed in September the roster of players who will be participating in the team’s future games, Hamdallah was conspicuously absent from the list.
Since then, Moroccan soccer supporters have applied intense pressure on the newly hired head coach, insisting that the striker belong on the World Cup roster. Since departing the Moroccan team’s 2019 training camp, Hamdallah hasn’t participated in any games for them.
Hamdallah was not “ready” since he was not on the field because of his suspension, according to Regragui, who emphasized that he has been eager to make decisions that are in the best interest of the club.
Yassine Bounou, Munir Mohamedi El Kajoui, and Reda Tagnaouiti are among the goalkeepers on Regragui’s roster for Morocco’s forthcoming World Cup matches.
The new manager called up Achraf Hakimi, Noussair Mazraoui, Nayef Aguerd, Romain Saiss, Achraf Dari, Jaouad El Yamiq, Yahya Attiatllah, and Badr Banoun to form the team’s defensive line.
Additionally, he called midfielders Yahya Jebran, Abdelhamid Sabbiri, Selim Amallah, Azzedine Ounahi, and Sofyan Amrabat.
The front line for the national team also consists of Abderrazak Hamdallah, Hakim Ziyech, Soufiane Boufal, Amine Harit, Abdessamad Ezzalzouli, Zakaria Aboukhlal, Ilias Chair, Youssef Ennesyri, and Walid Cheddira.
At a press conference today, Regragui made the announcement and reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring the Atlas Lions have a successful performance at the next international competition.
The coach also expects the Moroccan team to put up a spectacular performance and please Moroccans everywhere. The Atlas Lions will depart for Qatar on November 13 from Morocco, he added.
