Le Monde: Regragui relies on the qualities of its players to climb to 8th

The more than correct course of the Atlas Lions at the Qatar 2022 World Cup continues to arouse the interest of the international press.

In its edition to be published on Thursday, the French newspaper, Le Monde, notes that the coach of Morocco, Walid Regragui, is betting on the qualities of his players, a solid defense and an ability to project himself sharply, to climb to the 8th. World Cup final.

In three months, Walid Regragui has hardly had time to take the pulse of his team, noting that the recent winner of the African Champions League, with Wydad, from Casablanca got down to the task, without however giving up to the heritage of the Franco-Bosnian technician, Vahid Halihodzic, underlines Le Monde under the title “Walid Regragui, the claw of the Atlas Lions”.

A victory at the World Cup, even the first for the country since 1998, does not satisfy the ambitious 47-year-old technician, the daily still indicates, noting that four days after having surprised Belgium (2-0) and plunged the Devils red in the crisis, the Moroccan national team faces Thursday Canada, already eliminated, with the ambition of qualifying for the next round.

Le Monde recalls in this sense that the Atlas Lions, entering the running at the Al-Bayt stadium, a tent-shaped enclosure in the north of Qatar, are aware of being able to put an end to thirty-six long years of waiting.

The publication also quotes Senegalese coach Aliou Cissé, who said Moroccans are a “source of inspiration” for African football, recalls that Walid Regragui’s men must validate their ticket for the knockout phase of the competition, Thursday during the last group meeting, against Canada.
