Morocco World Cup predicted lineup vs Portugal (4-3-3)
GK: Yassine Bounou – Since Oleksandr Shovkovskyi of Ukraine in 2006, Morocco’s goalie is the first to record a clean sheet in a World Cup penalty shootout.
RB: Achraf Hakimi – Vahid Halilhodzic, Regragui’s predecessor, was so in awe of Hakimi that one compliment didn’t sit well with some of his fellow players.
CB: Jawad El Yamiq – El Yamiq had his car vandalized, a tyre punctured, and the words “go away hdp” scrawled into the side of the door following Real Valladolid’s relegation last season.
CB: Badr Benoun – Benoun wasn’t impressed when former Morocco manager Herve Renard tried to bring him up for the 2019 AFCON after leaving him off the team for the 2018 World Cup.
LB: Noussair Mazraoui – Halilhodzic and the fullback for Bayern Munich argued “over a bottle.” In a nutshell, Mazraoui disregarded Halilhodzic’s instructions to refrain from drinking during training when he was advised to do so. Fortunately, Regragui ushered Mazraoui back into the arrangement without delay.
CM: Azzedine Ounahi – The tireless Ounahi has exerted more defensive pressure than any other player still playing in the game (245).
CM: Sofyan Amrabat – It is safe to conclude that Amrabat considers himself to be Moroccan despite being born in the Netherlands.
CM: Selim Amallah – The 26-year-old hasn’t ever played club football outside of Belgium, where he was born, but this year, he’s been practically constant in the national squad.
RW: Hakim Ziyech – Marco van Basten, a legendary Dutch player, bemoaned Ziyech’s lack of playing time at Chelsea before the competition.
ST: Youssef En-Nesyri – En-Nesyri made history by becoming the first Moroccan to score in back-to-back World Cups, and the Sevilla forward has now scored in each of his nation’s last five significant international competitions.
LW: Sofiane Boufal – Boufal made a strong forecast back in September. He said to Hanif Ben Berkane, “You’re going to think I’m nuts.”
