The Moroccan national coach takes Hakim Ziyech to the World Cup, as Mazraoui and Amrabat were chosen
Since Regragui’s appointment, Ziyech has been accepted back into the Moroccan national team. Ziyech came into conflict with former national coach Vahid Halilhodzic, and therefore did not play for his country for a long time. Now, just like the 2018 World Cup, it is there and all eyes are on it.
Former Ajax player Mazraoui and former Feyenoord player Amrabat have also been told they can come to Qatar. Morocco plays in Group F against Croatia, Belgium and Canada. Morocco will face Croatia on November 23, Belgium on November 27 and Canada on December 1.
The national football team coach did not choose Groningen top scorer Ricardo Pepe for the World Cup. The 19-year-old striker scored three goals for “USA” in the World Cup qualifiers, but national coach Greg Berhalter prefers Norwich City’s Josh Sargent.
“I had a very difficult conversation with Ricciardo,” said Berhalter, who has played in the Netherlands with PEC Zwolle, Sparta and SC Cambuur. “It’s always difficult for a boy in the World Cup to help you with his goals, but then he doesn’t become part of the group.”
With England and Wales, the United States will meet two countries in Group B at the World Cup, many of which play in the English Championship. Iran is the third opponent. “The Netherlands have great competition, but they are not played as physically as in the world championships,” says Berhalter.
With former Ajacie Sergiño Dest and midfielder Luca de la Torre (former Heracles), two players of the American selection have a past in the Premier League. Other famous names in the group include Weston McKinney (Juventus), Giovanni Reina (Borussia Dortmund) and Christian Pulisic (Chelsea).
Former Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has been included in the Cameroon squad to participate in the Qatar World Cup. National coach Rigobert Song announced on Wednesday that the current Inter goalkeeper belongs to a group of 26 players.
Vincent Abubakar is the captain of the state. He also played in the 2010 and 2014 World Cup Finals. Cameroon plays in the group stage in Qatar against Switzerland, Serbia and Brazil, and is one of the big favorites.
Luka Modric will start his fourth world championship with Croatia in two weeks. The 37-year-old Real Madrid midfielder is the captain of choice for national team coach Zlatko Dalic on Wednesday.
Modric was also there in 2006, 2014 and 2018. In 2010 Croatia missed the World Cup. In 2018, the Croats lost 4-2 to France in the World Cup Final. Croatia plays in the group with Belgium, Morocco and Canada in the World Cup.
