They coasted through the qualification period for the World Cup in Russia. In their last game they needed at the very least a draw if their hopes of travelling north in 2018 where to stay alive. It reminds many of their group efforts in 1986 when they placed top of their group ahead of both England and Portugal. The 2018 Russia World Cup could be another chance for Morocco to remind the world of who they are.
For the first time in twenty years, Morocco will feature in a World Cup. The furthest they’ve progressed in the global tournament was in 1986 where they face West Germany in the last sixteen, losing 1-0 to the side that became runners up that year.
Their manager Herve Renard has won the CAF africa cup of nations with two different countries, the first ever to do so. He likes to play very defensively and attack when the prime opportunities arise. This became apparent in Morocco’s 2-0 victory over Ivory Coast in the World Cup Qualifiers.
Despite being very defensive, they have also done what is needed to progress to the final stages of the FIFA World Cup, with great players in every position, the African side will be causing more damage than one would expect next year.
