World Cup 2022: A bright future for Morocco?

What’s next for this ad?

The end of a dream and a very beautiful epic. On Wednesday evening, Morocco fell for the first time in the World Cup. In the face of the French national team, the Atlas Lions showed a good face, as it has been since the start of the World Cup, but they faced the competence and discipline of Didier Deschamps’ men. The Blues boss had planned everything. So the adventure stops here for Morocco, who clearly has regrets. But as coach Walid Regragui clearly demonstrated, it is necessary above all to highlight the beautiful path of his team in the World Cup. The team that will characterize the morale. We gave the maximum, and that’s the main thing. Good face show, Jameel supporters We’ll have to work to get to the next level and win the World Cup, but we’re not far away.specifically after Regragui’s match.

The team is still very young

Morocco will really be able to benefit from the experience gained in the World Cup first because the Moroccan workforce is made up of very young players with several years to go. Since the quarter-finals, Morocco has the lowest average age (26.2). At first, only Romain Sayss and Yacine Bounou were over thirty years old. Pour le rest, on retrouvait des joueurs assez jeunes et qui ont performé: Sofyan Amrabat (26 ans), Hakimi (24 ans), Ounahi (22 ans), Aguerd (26 ans), En Nesyri (25 ans), Mazraoui (25 years). On the bench, Morocco also has players with high potential and gained experience who are likely to bring in the future such as Abou Khallal (22 years old), Sabri (26 years old), Abdel Ezz (20 years old), El Rais (25 years old) or Bilal Al Khanous (18 years old). . What must be so reassuring for the future.

Recently, former Moroccan DTN Nasser Larget also explained to Foot Mercato that the exploits of the Atlas Lions could continue for some time yet with this beautiful generation. Walid Regragui has managed to restore a very strong national team, already ready for international competitions. About 70% of the team has already played 3 African Nations Cups and 2 World Cups now. Hakimi, En-Nesyri, Ziyech and Amrabat started early with the team. It is a team that was built with Lekjaa And Renard They used to play with Morocco and most of them also played in the youth team Walid Regragui has a beautiful generation on his hands and he still has 6-8 years to go.. Walid Regragui will now have time to build his squad. After his arrival only three months ago, the Morocco coach had to work quickly and besides the World Cup, he especially meant to shine in the next African Cup of Nations, which is the real goal of Morocco for three editions now.

Attractive bisexual team

With this workforce, and the 2022 World Cup saga, Walid Regragui has woven very solid foundations with executive players. He will now be able to work more calmly and with greater depth, especially with regard to his style of play, because Morocco will only face African teams for several years who will play on a different record. If during this World Cup the Atlas Lions had a case of little thumbs, they would be the ogre for a few years to be beaten down for the African nations. Walid Rekragui will therefore have to take on the challenge of assuming this favored position in the upcoming competitions and the next match. It is a big enough challenge when you know the difficulties Morocco faces in performing on the African continent. But the recent results are necessarily positive and encouraging, especially for the Moroccan federation, which has invested heavily in football, especially the great Mohammed VI Academy, which provided Unahi, Agord or En-Nesiri, to name a few.

In addition to the fact that there is now an interesting breeding ground in the country, Morocco will also be able to count on its dual citizenship. Many young players in France, Belgium, Spain, Italy or the Netherlands could represent the Atlas Lions. Morocco’s historic trip to this World Cup can certainly cement Morocco’s place in this record. With very professional facilities, Morocco has serious arguments to convince the player to defend the red and green. If some big talents like Chadi Riyad (Barcelona) or Ismail Saibari (PSV) have already opted to represent Morocco, that could give ideas to players like Amine Adly (who has already refused a call-up under Wahid Haliludzic), Mohamed Ali-Chou (Sociedad) or Even Sofiane Diop (Nice), who has the possibility to choose France, Senegal or Morocco. Because for several years the FRMF has decided to be completely flexible with binational companies that believe that a player who can bring sports in the short, medium or long term is always welcome even after several rejections.

It’s time to prepare for the sequel

After this historic trip to the country and Africa, Morocco can be calm for the future in the short and medium term. I came to lead the Moroccan national team to the World Cup. But above all, I am preparing for the next Africa Cup of Nations. This is my ultimate goal. We will be a favourite. (…) I am seeking the address”He recently explained Walid Regragui, who inserted a clause in his contract that allows the Moroccan Football Federation to separate from him if Morocco does not reach at least the semi-finals of the next African Cup. The next African Cup of Nations in exactly one year (January 2024), players such as Romain Sayess (32 years old), Zikh (29 years old) and Boufal (29 years old) will still be present in perhaps their last competition with Morocco. Thus the group is not at risk of being qualitatively reduced (except for injury). On the contrary, even with the emergence of certain talents, this group will be strengthened in the future. Finally, with this course, Walid Regragui gives himself time because he will be able to approach the upcoming deadlines very calmly: first because he has won the hearts of the Moroccan press that should not bother him, then because his credibility with the group and his FRMF is very high. And since Morocco has already qualified for the upcoming African Cup of Nations, the former coach of Wydad is in a chair to work. After the tears of yesterday, perhaps Moroccans can smile at what awaits Morocco tomorrow.
