Story closed, Ziyech finally to Africa Cup
Where we previously via the Moroccan medium Le Matin learned that Hakim Ziyech not part of 26-strong selection of HervÃ© Renard, came that same medium yesterday afternoon with the redemptive message. The usually savvy site knows to mention that the national coach finally no substitute more will call for the injured John Belhanda. Despite his injury, the OGC Nice attacker in all likelihood just travel to Gabon, later in the tournament (may still be in the group stage) would still be able to use its services.
With this post, where we can take that with reasonable assurance of to it's right, are finally all doors closed for a possible participation of Hakim Ziyech to the African Cup. However regrettable it may sound but as it looks now, in combination with that Renard a break with the League trying to force it, Ziyech will also come in dribs and drabs but after the tournament action for Morocco. The country what he rather preferred the Dutch national football team where he certainly also good at would thrive.
Except Ziyech will then also other wrongful laggards such as Wqa Laide, Omar El Kaddouri, Zouhair Feddal Baldock and Aziz have to accept the situation. The coming weeks will show whether this national coach his employment at the FRMF worth. If Ra not achieve the semifinal than he would, to the clauses in his contract, national coach off at the Lions of the Atlas.
The selection will travel tomorrow to the Emiratische El Ain where they will prepare for the tournament. There waiting there for exhibition games against Finland and Iran, during the training camp will be brought back to the Group of 26 man 23.
