Morocco

The Morocco team will aim for their Maiden FIFA World Cup title in Russia. Morocco is placed in Group B of the 2018 FIFA World Cup alongside Iran, Portugal and Spain. Let’s have a look at the performance of the team in FIFA World Cups.

Morocco have long been underachievers on the African footballing stage, given the depth of their squad and the talent they have at their disposal, but in recent years they have ramped up their ambition and they now return to the 2018 World Cup stage. They last played in the finals in France in 1998, but are back after hiring Herve Renard to guide their fortunes. A creative midfield is complimented by a strong defence but, although they won one of their qualifying games 6-0, striking is still a problem.
