Atlas Lions coach Walid Regragui said that tomorrow’s match against Tanzania will not be easy, highlighting their “exceptional motivation” to face the national team.
During a press conference held this morning in Dar es Salaam, Regragui noted that he has yet to finalize the lineup for tomorrow’s match, with several players still suffering from injuries.
Regragui said that the road to the 2026 World Cup is still long, stating, “The first step is facing Tanzania, and our goal is to achieve a positive result at the start of the qualifiers and continue in the same way to finish this stage on top of the group.”
The national team is well aware of the responsibility and the importance of tomorrow’s match, Regragui added, saying that “football has evolved, and we must dispel the idea of easy matches.”
Regragui expressed satisfaction with the overall atmosphere in Dar es Salaam, confirming that the Atlas Lions received a warm welcome from the Tanzanian crowd.
