The head coach of the Atlas Lions of Morocco, Walid Regragui has made it clear to his team that they must conquer Africa for a second time before they can beat the world.
Morocco who is the first African country to be in the semi-finals of a FIFA World Cup has added another historic feat to their records by beating Brazil for the first time.
The team has, however, not won the Africa Nations Cup trophy since 1976.
Regragui revealed that he told his players that they cannot be kings of the world before being kings of our continent.
Morocco beat five-time World Cup winners, Brazil, 2-1 in an international friendly on Saturday.
The Atlas Lion’s place in the 2023 AFCON tournament was confirmed when South Africa and Liberia played a 2-2 draw which means the two countries are unable to catch Morocco at the top of the group.
The coach after beating Brazil said, you know it means a lot for us to beat Brazil, the top team in the Fifa ranking, and the country of football.
He concluded that this is the month of Ramadan, and we have to go and pray Tarawih to confirm if it’s true or not.
