To all you notice that it's football climate in Morocco is undergoing a major development. It is to be seen at the facilities, the better performance of both national teams and club teams and finally how the things are there now for the Moroccan Federation. Under Federal President Faouzi Lekjaa we see a more and more international organizations when it comes to what Morocco tournament. We see a bond that dares to make opportunistic choices with a view to selection reinforcements (the well-known story of Ziyech and Amrabat), is and remains concerned and in which the national interest as opposed to the past more and more as a starting point is . The only thing still separates Morocco from continuing this trend is at least 90 minutes and a tie at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny. We're going to see Incha'Allah tonight!
