FIFA World Cup 2022 Morocco Players, Squad

Morocco’s World Cup squad for 2022 is expected to be named in October of this year. After beating DR Congo 5-2 on aggregate in a qualification play-off in March by Vahid Halilhodzic’s side, Vahid Halilhodzic’s team secured their spot in the tournament.

The Moroccans qualified for the play-offs by finishing top of a group that included Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sudan, amassing 18 points out of a possible 18.

Morocco will be participating in its sixth World Cup. In 1994, 1998, and 2018, they also suffered an early exit from the group stages when they made their debut in 1970.

The 1986 edition of the World Cup in Mexico saw Morocco reach the round of 16, where they narrowly lost out to West Germany 1-0 in the round of 16.

How many players are Morocco allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?

For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When will the final Morocco Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?

A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.

The 2022 World Cup will be held in November and December of that year. Due to the extreme heat in Qatar during the summer, the tournament was moved from its usual time slot in June and July.

The deadline for confirming the World Cup squads is October 20 – 30 days before the competition gets underway with Senegal vs Netherlands on the 18th of October. Despite the fact that competing teams are allowed to name their squads before then, most managers will make the best use of the time that they have been given.

The Moroccans and other nations are likely to name a preliminary squad before whittling the group down to 23 (or 26).

Who will make the final Morocco Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?

Hakim Ziyech, the Chelsea player who retired from international football in February, is currently the biggest issue facing the Moroccan national football team.

It is well known that the ex-Ajax man has a strained relationship with Vahid Halilhodzic, who left him out of the squad for the Africa Cup of Nations at the beginning of this year. Since June 2021, Ziyech has not played for the Moroccan national team. He will not travel to Qatar unless there is a chance to join the management team.

Morocco’s star player is Achraf Hakimi, who is guaranteed a place in the squad if he is fit for the game. One of the players to keep an eye on is Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

In Qatar, Watford fans will watch Imran Louza and Adam Masina, while Wolves captain Romain Saiss will represent Morocco.
