Column: ' the World Cup ticket what the streets can get very Morocco '

It seemed for years almost elusive, but what would be nice: Morocco on the WORLD CUP by 2018 in Russia.

In every Moroccan household is undoubtedly subject of conversation, the all-deciding encounter of tomorrow night with the Ivorians. We have in recent years with Hervé Renard as national coach a time of ups and downs with it, the public was at one point so cynical making the situation of the Frenchman almost untenable by the Moroccan public opinion. The systematic ignoring the star on the Dutch fields, Hakim Ziyech, gradually degenerated into a national discussion. Ultimately, the two-time African Cup winner however, tack and he laid the quarrel with the Ajax midfielder.

Why I'm in this column, the first to cite this soap has everything to do with the performance of Renard as trainer of the Lions v/d Atlas. This long-lingering issue shows on the one hand his stubbornness and guts to make certain choices and let on the other hand, what we have missed for a long time in Morocco: discipline. In my experience, does it have to long time that national team players, managers and the Moroccan tied the edges there from walk. Because if we retrace the previous World Cup qualifying campaigns then we were certainly not outgunned on paper, however we missed time and time again that little bit of luck or that technical impulse from above.


A career as a Moroccan-international has more than at other European and African top teams a high emotional content. The love of the supporter can go so far that a national coach after an exhibition game stormed during a interview (ed. 1-3 win against South Korea), but is also back as away if the coach one of the most beloved internationals ignores. For me, World Cup participation already from the time that I am aware of the role of international football, of course, never have been, and the sad thing is that this for nearly all current internationals. After 20 years of absence on the football stage is that World Cup dream turned into something frantic, but nowhere near.

Very Morocco holds her heart and that while we at a tie that World Cup ticket already in hands. Our opponent out there the last 3 world cups or was there will be to that series doesn't end there. What I expect is a genuine physical and offensive game of football tomorrow night. In Morocco, the Netherlands, in cafes crowded wifi connections and tv boxes will go become overloaded. The experience will be so large that the internationals on the pitch impossible to miss this opportunity. Morocco is a poor country, a developing country but this World Cup dream may for awhile all those worries at the people. It may sound very cliché but whether you live in wealthy Europe or elsewhere in the world, we are all concerned about the fate of the less fortunate there.

This World Cup ticket is going to put on the international map, Morocco next summer for even more macro-economic prosperity and will the Moroccans in Morocco and elsewhere in the world on the streets. But until we all keep our hearts, it will not be the first time that we are not at the last minute.
