Club History

Herve Renard led Morocco to qualification for the first time in 20 years after four consecutive World Cup misses. Ranked 42nd in the world, Morocco could have a few surprises up its sleeve in Russia. The team has been defensively difficult to breakdown under Renard. Morocco didn’t concede a goal in qualifying. The back is built on the experience of Juventus center-back Mehdi Benatia. Despite the defense before attack approach of Renard, Morocco does have two very exciting offensive players. Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech is one of the most promising young attacking players. Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s Archaf Hakimi is playing at the highest level in Spain.
