Vahid Halilhodzic has made some changes for the match between Morocco and Comoros on Friday January 14, marking the return of Ayoub El Kaabi.
The Atlas Lions will meet the Coelacanths for their second game in the African Cup of Nations at 5 p.m.
After the success of its first match against Ghana (1-0), the national team will be looking for a second victory.
In this sense, the coach is opting for a 4-3-3, calling on Ayoub El Kaabi, cured of the coronavirus, who will attack alongside Tarik Tissoudali and Sofiane Boufal, to the detriment of Azzedine Ounahi and Zakaria Aboukhlal, who started against Ghana.
Regarding the midfield, the latter will be occupied by Imran Louza, Selim Amallah and Sofyan Amrabat who marks his return.
As for the defense, Vahid Halilhodzic will still rely on his hard core composed of the captain of the selection Romain Saiss, Achraf Hakimi, Nayef Aguerd and finally Adam Masina. Unsurprisingly, the cages will be guarded by Yassine Bounou, the great hero of the first meeting.
