The Atlas Lions, "strong opponents" for the Seleção

The Moroccan football selection, which will cross swords on the current 25th in a friendly with Brazil, is a “strong opponent” which will mark a new cycle of Brazilian football, indicated the Federation of the South American country (CBF).

“It’s the start of a new cycle for Brazilian football. The CBF kicks off with an appearance by our team against a tough opponent, Morocco, who reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar last year.underlined the CBF in a press release.

For the president of the CBF, Ednaldo Rodrigues, quoted in the press release, “it will be a good test for the Brazilian men’s selection. And, certainly, a match that will arouse the interest of the Brazilian supporters”.

The Brazilian men’s football team will play its first friendly match of 2023 on March 25 at the Ibn Batouta stadium in Tangier. This is the first time the national team has played on Moroccan soil, observes the Brazilian football governing body.

At the same time, the federation gave a brief presentation on the Tangier stadium, officially inaugurated in April 2011 and which has a capacity of 65,000 spectators. “He became known to Brazilians after hosting the Club World Cup”, which saw the participation of the most famous Brazilian club Flamengo, adds the same source.

Coach Ramon Menezes, who commanded the team that won the South American Under-20 Cup last Sunday, will be in charge of the Selecao, which has not yet hired a coach.

After the departure of Tite, following the elimination of the quarter-finals in Qatar, the Brazilian media evoke an agreement to be revealed later with the Italian Carlo Ancelotti, currently at Real Madrid, to take control of the Brazilian selection for three years .

The CBF stressed that the match against Morocco will be the only friendly match of the next dates set by FIFA for friendly matches.
