According to press reports, Morocco coach Walid Rekraghi will make several changes to the starting line-up to face Croatia on Saturday in the third-place match at the World Cup in Qatar.
The Moroccan national team, the Atlas Lions, are suffering from multiple injuries in their ranks after meeting their French counterpart (0-2) who brought them together last Wednesday night at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. city, in the semi-final round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Walid Rekraghi is expected to adopt a four-back (4-3-3) formation with Yahya Atiyatallah mostly on the left flank at the expense of an injured Nasir Mazraoui.
The Morocco manager also decided to start with Jawad Al-Yamiq in defense, in place of captain Roman Sayes along with Nayef Akrad, with Ashraf Dari back on the bench, while relying on Abdel Hamid Al-Sabri from the start at the expense of Salim Amlah.
