The first words of Issame Charaï

The Moroccan under-23 football team crushed its Ghanaian counterpart by 5 goals to 1 (half-time 3-1), Tuesday evening at the Prince Moulay Abdellah sports complex in Rabat, on behalf of the second day of group A CAN U23 (Morocco-2023), thus ensuring its qualification for the last four of this continental competition.

The goals of the Atlas Cubs were the work of Amir Richardson (7th), Ismael Saibari (13th), Yanis Begraoui, author of a double (30th, 53rd) and Abdessamad Ezzalzouli (48th).

For the national coach, Issame Charaï, the Moroccan team avoided the mistakes of the first meeting against Guinea and fully deserved their victory against Ghana.

“I’m very happy for the players because they deserved to win. From the start, they pressed. They didn’t make the mistakes of the first match and were aggressive, especially on the second balls,” Charaï said at the post-match conference.

The players also remained fully concentrated against a strong team, he pointed out.

Admittedly, the players lost their concentration at the end of the first half, but this is normal, given their young age, explained the Moroccan technician, who underlined the need to now forget this result and prepare for the next challenge. .

“You mustn’t get carried away. It’s a won and deserved match, but we will work for the next meeting, ”he insisted.

After this victory, the Moroccan selection took the lead of its group with six units and secured one of the two tickets for the Olympic Games at stake for the semi-finals.
