Stars starred with the national team

The fans of the national football team will be heading to the Moroccan Compound V in Casablanca on Saturday evening, where the Moroccan national team will visit Malawi in the second round of the African Nations Cup qualifiers hosted by Cameroon in the summer of 2019. Ambitious in completing the good performances that were pointed out before and during the 2018 Russian Federation championship.

In the first appearance before the Moroccan crowd, in the wake of early and bitter elimination in the finals of the State of Russia competition, national black voters, Herve Ronard, wish to sign a good performance and win the biggest in those qualifiers and erase their stumble during the first phase when they arrived guests on The Cameroonians, who were defeated for zero, thus marking a good start to secure a ticket to the African wedding in the group that includes Cameroon, Malawi and the Comoros.

The national elements that have been called for this match hope to establish the trust they have forged with Moroccan fans before and after the Russian Championship, especially as the match will take place on the grounds of the sports boat Mohammed V, where the players feel warm and irreversible and enthusiastic and unambiguous, making them offer the best offers On the ground floor of the “horror” stadium, which is the preferred direction of RONAR.

The match is crucial because it comes to confirm the awakening of national football and the quest for progress in Africa, both at national teams and local teams, thus laying the warmth and confidence in the crowds eagerly looking forward to the 17-year-old’s presence in the African Cup of Nations. And not the crowning of the precious cup that has been absent from the coffers of the national elite since 1976.

In fact, Saturday’s match will not be simplified, especially as it comes on the one hand with the launch of the Sezoon football where a number of players, most of whom are practicing in foreign tournaments, to the frivolity and lack of competition, on the other hand, will put the Moroccan national team Of the African Cup of Nations in front of a submerged African team, shares the lead with the Cameroon team after his victory over the Comoros zero goal to draw the first round of those competitions, which took place on 10 June last year.

The national voter, Herve Ronard, preferred to call for the basic human structure of the Russian Federation, with the exception of defender Mehdi Benatia. He preferred to replace him with the promising player Nayef Akard, who recently joined Dijon. Dutchman Naseer Al Mazroui, who is on the verge of a good start, has been joined by fellow Dutchman Hakim Ziash, who has been named the best player in the Dutch league.

It is worth mentioning that the human composition adopted by Rönard is a combination of experienced professional players who have accumulated a tremendous experience at the international and African levels. They are led by Médér Méparek Boussoufa, Karim Al Ahmadi, Younes Belhanda, Nabil Derar, Marwan Dakota, Roman Sayes, Noureddine Emrabet and Khaled Boutaib. Including Amin Harith, Ashraf Hakimi, Hamza Mandil, Yusuf al-Nusairi and Ayoub al-Kaabi.

It seems that Ronar preferred to call on players who combine between experience, strength and strength without forgetting the element of readiness, aware of the seriousness of the responsibility placed on him, in addition to the extreme necessity of this meeting, which is one of the keys that will give a strong moral and psychological boost to the national elements to continue the African Cup of Nations Team spirit that does not accept a substitute win.

The Cameroonians will not be counted as the host of the tournament, which will see for the first time in the history of the African Nations Cup the participation of 24 teams instead of 16.

 After the last world competition that took place in the State of Bologna in late July

 And national frameworks rely on Bernoussi’s ability to crown Africa during this competition.

The head of the Royal Moroccan Handball University, Hanafi Adly, said in a speech at a conference held at the headquarters of Laayoune-Saqia Al Hamra to prepare for the African Grand Prix, World clubs for both female and male clubs.

Al-Hanafi concluded that the two final matches of the African Cup of Nations (male and female) will be held on May 4, 2016, in which the qualifying team for each category will be selected for the World Club Championship which will be held in Qatar.

In the last match, Morocco needed to win, but it collided with the owner of the land and the public, the South African team. Although Morocco opened the result through Issam Al-Adwa in the 9th minute, however, The Bafana Bfana equalized, then Morocco advanced again in the 81st minute with a goal scored by Abdelilah Al-Hafidi, but luck was not in favor of the Atlas Lions, and South Africa tied and Morocco exited the first round after Cape Verde won in the last minute against Angola by 2-1. At the level of the 2014 World Cup, the Moroccan team failed again to reach the finals, which made Moroccan football seek change to rise again, and this was embodied in the comprehensive change that occurred in the management of the Moroccan Football Association. (2014-2016) Change and the attempt to build the national team Badou Zaki After the long controversy that took place between officials of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, Fawzi Lekjaa was finally elected as the new president of the university and presented a new project aimed at restoring Moroccan football to its glories. In the face of the setbacks and failures that have accompanied the Atlas Lions for ten years since 2004, the Moroccan fans demanded the return of coach Badou Zaki, the owner of the last achievement in the 2004 African Cup of Nations, especially since the 2015 African Cup of Nations finals were scheduled to take place in Morocco, and indeed after a long anticipation, the Royal League contracted Moroccan Football Association with Zaki on Friday, May 2, 2014 [12] The former Moroccan football stars Mustafa Hajji and Said Chiba were appointed assistant coaches, and Zaki took it upon himself to prepare for the event, so he camped in Portugal and then faced Russia in a friendly in June. He also played four friendly matches. Others in September and October. On the other hand, the draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers resulted in a relatively difficult confrontation when the Lions faced Equatorial Guinea back and forth in the second round, as Morocco won the first leg at home by 2-0 and despite losing the second leg by 0-1, the Atlas Lions managed to cross To the qualifying group stage for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Contrary to all expectations, the Moroccan League separated from Zaki by mutual consent, and French coach Herve Renard was appointed to lead the Atlas Lions in the African qualifiers for the Continental Cup and the World Cup qualifiers. (2016-present) A new golden generation has passed the group stage in the 2017 African Cup, Herve Renard, the current coach of the Moroccan national football team, after contracting with Herve Renard, as if the first test for the latter was to overcome the obstacle of the Cape Verde team in the 2017 African Nations Cup qualifiers, where he succeeded in winning It had to go 0-1 and back by 2-0, and thus the Moroccan team was the first to qualify for the CAN. On September 1, 2017, in its third match in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, the Atlas Lions crushed Mali 6-0, Hakim Ziyech scored a double, and the rest of Morocco’s goals were scored by Khaled Boutayeb, Ashraf Hakimi, Faycal Fajr and Maimoun Mahi, but the negative tie after that out Al-Diyar brought doubt to the Moroccan public about the possibility of Morocco qualifying for the World Cup, but confidence returned to the public after it kidnapped the top of the third group from Ivory Coast, after its 3-0 victory over Gabon in Casablanca, with a hat trick by Khaled Boutayeb, and in the last qualifier match against Ivory Coast, Morocco needed one point. To get through to the World Cup. On November 11, 2017, in a decisive match to qualify for the World Cup, Morocco defeated Ivory Coast 0-2 in Abidjan and two goals were signed by Nabil Dirar and Mehdi Benatia, and thus the Atlas Lions finally qualified for the World Cup in Russia after an absence of 20 years. [15][16] Hakim Ziyech of Ajax Amsterdam is considered one of the most important players who have passed in the history of the Moroccan national team. The World Cup draw for Morocco was placed in Group B along with Portugal, Spain and Iran, where he started his World Cup campaign against Iran, then Portugal and finally Spain. Before heading to Russia, the Moroccan team held a preparatory gathering in Switzerland starting on May 22nd and on the 31st of the same month the national team played a friendly match against Ukraine in the Swiss capital that ended in a goalless draw. He won a second friendly match at the expense of Slovakia, 2-1. On June 15, Morocco played its first match against Iran; He was defeated by a clean goal scored by Aziz Bouhaddouz against his own net in stoppage time of the match (90 + 5). After this match, he changed the second group with zero points, especially after Spain and Portugal tied 3-3. On June 20, the Moroccan team played its second match against Portugal, and despite its strong performance, it was defeated with a clean goal, signed by star Cristiano Ronaldo in the fourth minute, to leave the Moroccan team early from the competition. Played a final match against Spain on Monday 25 June 2018; And he gave a good return, as he succeeded in imposing a 2-2 positive draw on his Spanish counterpart, one of the contenders for the title, especially since the latter managed to adjust by his player Iago Aspas late in the match. African Cup 2019 After the 2018 World Cup, the Moroccan team returned to continental competition and set it this time on the most difficult challenge, which is winning the African Cup after the first and last title in 43 years, especially and the opportunity seems appropriate in light of the presence of players playing in the best European leagues, among them, Yassine Bouno, Nassir Mazraoui, Mahdi Benatia, Ghanem Sayes, Ashraf Hakimi, Youssef Ait bin Nasser, Amin Harit, Hakim Ziyech, Osama Idrissi, Sofiane Boufal, Youssef Al-Nusairi. And the beginning was the search for early qualification for the 2019 African Nations Cup, after the defeat in the first match against Cameroon 0-1 in June 2017, the Atlas Lions outperformed Malawi 3-0, and then also beat Comoros 1-0 before being defeated. He tied with him 2-2, but quickly regained his balance, as he achieved his first victory over Cameroon, with two clean goals, signed by Hakim Ziyech, to qualify for the finals of the tournament. In the last friendly match in 2018, the Moroccan team outperformed its Tunisian counterpart in Rades, with a score of 0-1, to finish the Moroccan team’s FIFA ranking 40th in the world and third in the continent. Record the results Rabat – Atlas Lions, leopards, eagles, warriors, black stars, names that may seem strange in the world of sports, but they are nicknames adopted by African football teams because of their association in the local imagination with a traditional or mythical belief, or because they reflect a form of charisma, sophistication and even elegance, to The side of strength and daring. Some continental teams may have adopted the names of animals as symbols and nicknames for them, in a sign of strength, courage and speed, and also to reflect the nature of life in the wilds and jungles. African teams, according to those who follow the “strange” phenomenon, also chose nicknames that distinguish them from others with the aim of instilling enthusiasm in the hearts of their players and fans on the one hand, and spreading fear in the hearts of the players of competing teams on the other hand. However, other formations have distanced themselves from bearing names for animals. There are “brave warriors” as the nickname of the Namibian team, “kings or stars of cults” as a designation for the Tanzania team, or “flame” as the title of the Malawi team. Observers believe that these names mean a lot to African societies and are usually part of heritage, environment or folklore (folklore), but the name of a predatory animal “is not necessarily intended to strike terror into the hearts of opponents as much as it is to show the beauty and splendor of the animal itself.” The current edition of the African Nations Cup in Cameroon is marked by the participation of many teams bearing the names of animals, ranging from untamed lions, Atlas lions, Teranga lions, leopards, eagles, Carthage eagles, to warriors, brave warriors and others. Cameroon, the host of the tournament, is nicknamed the “Untamed Lions” because the lion represents the country as a symbol of strength and ferocity, and several teams chose it as a symbol, such as Senegal, nicknamed the “Teranga Lions”. The Senegalese preferred to add the word “Teranga”, which means “hospitality” in the local language, in order to differentiate it from the rest of the teams bearing the same title. As for the Moroccan team, or “Atlas Lions”, this title goes back to the extension of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, where the lions, also called the Berber lions, lived, because of the mixture of color that distinguished their shape between dark brown and white. And the most important thing that distinguished her was also the fierceness and calmness at the same time, the largeness and strength of her body and her skills during performances. The Democratic Republic of the Congo chose the nickname “Leopards”, considering that the leopard is characterized by its high speed and ferocity while chasing its prey, and therefore the title aims to urge the Congolese players to play with all speed and strength in order to overcome the opponent. In some African myths, the cheetah is considered the king of the jungle, not the lion. In the history of the Congo, the cheetah was the royal beast, symbolizing strength, courage and pride. The Ugandan team is also called “the crane”, which was chosen because of the elegance of its external shape, and the title was shortened to “cranes” only, especially since the crane is a bird with thin feet. Since the eagle is a symbol of strength and speed, many teams have chosen it as a symbol, such as Tunisia’s national team, nicknamed “The Eagles of Carthage”, because of the country’s historical association with the Carthaginian civilization, whose national symbol was the eagle. The Mali national team has also chosen the nickname “Eagle”, which is a symbol of the country and is of great importance in folk legends there. However, the Mali national team was named “Mali Eagles”, derived from the country’s symbol. As for the Zimbabwean team, it chose the title “Warriors”, a symbol of courage, strength and ferocity in the face of opponents, a name favored by fans of the round witch and sometimes optimistic about it. The Zimbabwean national football team was formerly known as Southern Rhodesia from 1939 to 1964, then Rhodesia from 1964 to 1980, and then became Zimbabwe Rhodesia. The distinguishing features of warriors are courage, strength and team spirit in order to conquer enemies, and these features have inspired many teams to achieve victory in the game. The Namibian national team is nicknamed “Courageous Warriors,” and Namibia is the land of the brave. It is the country’s national anthem, which was written and composed by Aksali Dwissep after the country’s independence in 1991 and from which the Namibia national team derived its nickname “Courageous Warriors.” The main distinguishing features of the warriors are courage, strength and team spirit in order to conquer enemies. The Tunisian national team is called the “Eagles of Carthage”, and there is no relationship between the title and the state emblem, which bore a picture of a black lion carrying a sword, and to be proud of Carthage is to be proud of the city, which is considered the cradle of Tunisian civilization and the capital of the ancient state in the Phoenician era, so when the Tunisian team searched for a name Famous for him, he chose the nickname Al-Nusour due to the speed of movement that Tunisian players have distinguished themselves over the generations. The nicknames of the African teams, despite the strangeness of some of them, remain with a special character that distinguishes them from the rest of the teams of the continents of the world, and they all aim to give an extra charge of enthusiasm to the players and urge them to do their best, as they excelled in choosing names that reflect their strength and courage. Animal names as a sign of strength and speed, while others chose titles closely related to heroic qualities that indicate courage and combat, as well as another category that preferred to choose historical symbolism. Moroccan women’s football and the dead end in one of the green spaces in Rabat, Karima runs more than an hour a day, in order to maintain her grace and fitness, after she failed to achieve her dream and join one of the Moroccan football teams. “I was fought by everyone, from my family to my friends and teachers. This is how this twenty-year-old girl expresses her surroundings’ opposition to her playing football, hoping that one day she will be able to change the mentality of Moroccan families and help her daughters achieve their dreams. It also confirms that Moroccan women’s football suffers from many problems that prevent its development. This is also confirmed by Mohamed Al-Abdi, coach of Al-Afaq Sports Club Al-Khenifari, noting that the level reached by Moroccan women’s football is still lagging behind the countries of the Arab Maghreb. Tunisia, for example, excluded the Moroccan team because of the Tunisian Federation’s interest in women’s football and considering it an essential component in the system Professionalism and an additional element at the level of viewing in sports stadiums, according to El-Abdi, who adds that “female football in Morocco is not in the best condition as some think, as it suffers from a backwardness of male thought.” Persecution of girls in the sports field Frauenfußball in Marokko soziale Hindernisse FLASH-GALERIE Mohamed El Abdi also believes that talking about Moroccan football is mixed with sadness, grief and heartbreak over the reality that “it could have been better and constituted a future for the footballer and an addition to the football scene.” He believes that women’s football practice is divided into three levels: practice in urban areas, practice in urban areas, that is, in shantytowns, and rural practice. This coach points out that the problems that football girls suffer from are the conservative culture and the lack of infrastructure, and he continues, explaining, “For example, in the rural world, the girl faces major and complex problems. The villagers and those who are allied with the jurists in finding a justification for closing the doors in the face of the girl.” Al-Abdi also refers to the negative role of mothers in this and says: “The macho culture of women and mothers contributes to limiting the development of women’s football, as they believe that football is a male game due to its rough nature.” Al-Abdi adds that women’s football teams that practice football at the regional level suffer from financial difficulties, as most of them depend on the incomes of local groups and the help of dignitaries, which deprives girls of competitiveness and acquiring real field skills. Of the 11 leagues in Morocco, only seven organize regional football tournaments Women’s football, which is not financially supported by the Royal Football League, according to the same source, which indicates that the Royal University did not take the initiative to organize a national women’s football championship between the champion teams only during the 2001/2002 sports season after the explosion of the national team scandal The women’s team, where a group of players stated that the national team’s camps had turned into spaces for practicing homosexuality, smoking, hookah and giving bribes. The national championship remained organized in its old format until the uprising of women’s teams in 2007, when about 54 clubs tried to establish the National Women’s Football League. In order to contain the initiative of the teams, the first national championship in its new form, financially supported, was organized during the 2007/2008 sports season and witnessed great competition, especially as it was organized in two halves, which had a negative impact on the national team, which has been stagnant since its establishment in 1988. A harsh societal view and a situation Bad material Frauenfußball in Marokko soziale Hindernisse Rajae Elghazali Moroccan football player Rajae Al-Ghazali considers Rajaa, a Moroccan football player, that society’s view is still harsh towards the girl who wants to join the sports field, especially football, because they liken her to a man, which makes families prevent her daughters from practicing this activity. Raja confirmed that she knows many girls who practice this sport away from the sight of their fathers. And she adds: “In Arab countries, it is always said that a girl who plays football resembles herself to a man, so I preferred to immigrate to Spain in order to achieve my dream without the oppressive view of society.” This young Moroccan woman moved to Europe in search of the dream of fame and professionalism in conditions suitable for her ambition, after she moved among many Moroccan teams, starting with the school championship and ending with the Royal Moroccan Army team. She is in constant contact with her friends in Morocco, and thus is aware of the tragic financial conditions in their country. The reason, according to this twenty-year-old girl, is that the players do not receive their dues. In Morocco, she says, there are only three teams that offer wages in a regular manner. For her part, Mona Morchid, who plays football as an amateur in Agadir, does not find many problems, because she does not consider it a professionalism as much as she considers it an opportunity to empty it. She gives priority to her studies, and therefore she does not count on the financial support that football may provide to her, However, she does not deny that her peers who want to become professional face many problems and obstacles related mainly to the material component and technical problems. Shy interest in women’s football. As Mohamed El Abdi says, Morocco lacks technical and trained frameworks to deal with the reality of women’s football, and it lacks organization, stadiums, means of transportation and equipment. The radiance of the Moroccan team returns to prominence again globally from the gate of the World Cup in Russia, after an absence from the global football wedding that lasted for twenty years, during which Moroccan football experienced disappointments and setbacks. With the exception of the Moroccan team’s qualification to the final of the African Nations Cup in 2004 and its loss to the host of the tournament, Tunisia (1-2), the “Atlas Lions” did not achieve significant achievements during the period following their bitter exclusion from the World Cup France in 1998, as Morocco failed to qualify for the tournaments. The World Cup in 4 consecutive editions (2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014), and his participation in the African Cup tournaments was meager, until Moroccans used to watch their country’s team come out of the first rounds in the most expensive tournaments on the continent. After setbacks and disappointments, the good news came to Moroccan fans from Russia, after the Moroccan team was able to reserve the ticket to participate in the World Cup tournament to be held this summer in 11 Russian cities. The second participation in the 1986 World Cup, the most prominent memory that remained stuck in the hearts of Moroccans, old and young, is the World Cup Mexico 1986, in which the Moroccan team achieved its best achievements ever in the history of its participation in the World Cup, by qualifying to the second round after making the event, and leading its group, after a draw In two matches against the English and Polish national teams, and the victory over the Portuguese team by three goals for the goal (the double of Abdel Razak Khairy and the goal of Miri), Morocco will be the first Arab and African team to reach the second round of the World Cup. And fate decreed that the Moroccan team collide in the second round with the German machines, the first team at the time in Europe, which included the most prominent players who are still Germans singing their glory, such as Lothar Matthaus, Voller, Rummenge and goalkeeper Schumacher .. But despite the strength of the Germans, the lions presented a good show He dazzled the spectators, before they were narrowly defeated by a goal in the last minutes of the match, through a free kick by the player Mateus.

In his three matches, the first against Belgium (0-1), the second against the Saudi national team (1-2), and the last against the Netherlands (1-2). The fourth participation in the 1998 World Cup, the Moroccan team regained its prestige in the World Cup in France, and presented an elegant performance in the group stage. After a draw against Norway with two goals for the same, (the goals of Mustafa Hajji and Abdel Jalil Heda), and a logical defeat against the Brazilian team by three, the Moroccan team defeated the Scottish team with three goals. Goals without response, signed by Abdel Jalil Hedda and Salah El-Din Basir on two occasions. But the shocking scenario of the other match that brought Norway and Brazil together in the same group, which ended in an unexpected defeat for the “samba” dancers, hastened the exit of the Atlas Lions from the group stage in a “bitter and disappointing” manner. The fifth participation in the World Cup Russia 2018, although the draw for the World Cup Russia put the Moroccan team in an iron group that includes the teams of Iran, Spain, and Portugal, the idea of ​​​​football does not know the impossible, and Morocco’s chances remain to overcome the group stage and repeat the scenario of the 1986 World Cup, and rid the Moroccans of the World Cup nightmare France that accompanied them For two decades. On Wednesday, Morocco and Mali qualified for the final of the African Nations Cup for local players, after the Moroccan team defeated its rival Cameroon 4-0. Mali was the first to qualify for the final match by defeating Guinea 5-4 on penalties after the end of the regular and extra time in a goalless draw.

The Moroccan team succeeded in opening the scoring when the Austrian Nahdet Berkane defender Omar took a side free kick that escaped from the hands of goalkeeper Hasho Keredo and prepared in front of Hassania Agadir defender Sufian Al-Booftini, who followed it with his right into the empty goal (29). The Moroccan team strengthened its progress with a wonderful goal when captain Ayoub Al Kaabi passed a ball behind the defense to Abdelilah Al-Hafezi inside the area, so he set it with his right hand for his colleague in Raja Casablanca, Sofiane Rahimi, coming from behind without supervision, so he followed it with his left crawling to the left of the goalkeeper (40). Rahimi dealt the final blow to Cameroon when he took advantage of a ball played by one of the defenders from a free kick to one of his colleagues, and the star of Raja Casablanca hit it with his right from outside the area, taking advantage of the goalkeeper’s exit from his den and netted it (74).

It is the second time in a row that Mali booked her ticket on penalties, after she smiled at her in the quarter-final against Congo, when the original and extra time also ended in a goalless draw. Similar to their win in the quarter-finals, Mali owes their qualification to Mamadou Koulibaly, who scored the last penalty kick that awarded them the ticket to the final.

Ayoub Al-Kaabi, the player of the Moroccan national team, caught the attention of the local players during the African Championship for the locals “Al-Shan” currently being held in Morocco. Al-Kaabi scored the first hat-trick in the tournament during the match between the Moroccan team and its Guinean counterpart on January 17th. A trio that the Nahdet Berkane player, who plays in the local professional league, confirmed his brilliance during the first match against Mauritania, when he scored two goals, on the 13th of this month, and another goal yesterday against Namibia led Morocco to the semi-finals. The six goals, Al Kaabi entered the history of the African Championship “Al-Shan” as the top scorer for the competition, which is considered the second in terms of importance and public follow-up after the African Cup of Nations. ** Birth certificate of a top scorer in Casablanca, specifically in the famous popular neighborhood of Bernoussi. The top scorer of the local team was born on June 25, 1993. Al-Kaabi began learning the ABCs of football in this neighborhood, where he started with the boys of the Oval Racing Team, a team that has long been known for producing great players in various major clubs in the Moroccan League. And the player moved 3 years ago to play in the ranks of a team in the amateur sections, before returning again to Racing Oval “Al-Rak” when he was practicing in the second division championship, a team with which Al-Kaabi will be able to confirm his distinction, after he finished last season as top scorer for the division championship. Second with 25 goals. Al-Kaabi contributed to the promotion of his team to the first professional league after 15 years spent by the club in the second division. The rise of Racing Oval and the brilliance of Al Kaabi made him the focus of the “greats” of the top clubs in the professional championship, led by Raja, Wydad Casablanca and the Royal Army, in addition to the Nahdet Berkane team. The brilliant team chose Nahdet Berkane, who before the “hat-trick” against Guinea had been admired by the coach of the Moroccan national team, Jamal Salami. Al-Salami, said after the end of the match that witnessed the trio, that he was impressed by the player’s capabilities during his follow-up to one of the friendly leagues in which Al-Kaabi was participating with Racing Oval, and made him among the list of players who were invited to participate in a preparatory gathering for the local team at the beginning of 2017. Al-Salami says: “ I put my trust in Al Kaabi and I believed in the possibilities that he has, and I predict a promising football future for him.” ** Al-Kaabi knocks on the doors of the first team. The brilliance of “Al-Kaabi” with the local team made him the focus of follow-up, especially by the coach of the first team, Herve Renard, who follows all the local matches in “Al-Shan”, and he also expressed his admiration for the performance of the tournament’s top scorer, Al Kaabi. The player’s brilliance in the “Chan” championship made the interest in him expand to something greater than the local league, as a group of French media allocated an important space to celebrate the tournament’s top scorer. In a tweet on Twitter, Nabil Galliat, an expert on African football in France Football, wrote, “The French League should take a very deep look at the Moroccan striker who is participating in CHAN 2018. Al-Kaabi scored the hat-trick against Guinea. Nahdet Berkane’s top scorer is interesting.” A group of media reports talked about the follow-up of a group of Turkish teams, along with the Tunisian Esperance, for the Moroccan player. But for his team, Nahdet Berkane, the issue of Al Kaabi’s professionalism is “premature”, which was confirmed by the managing director of the team, Hakim Hamadeh, in an interview with Anadolu Agency.

(2016-present) A new golden generation has passed the group stage in the 2017 African Cup, Herve Renard, the current coach of the Moroccan national football team, after contracting with Herve Renard, as if the first test for the latter was to overcome the obstacle of the Cape Verde team in the 2017 African Nations Cup qualifiers, where he succeeded in winning It had to go 0-1 and back by 2-0, and thus the Moroccan team was the first to qualify for the CAN.

African Cup 2019 After the 2018 World Cup, the Moroccan team returned to continental competition and set it this time on the most difficult challenge, which is winning the African Cup after the first and last title in 43 years, especially and the opportunity seems appropriate in light of the presence of players playing in the best European leagues, among them, Yassine Bouno, Nassir Mazraoui, Mahdi Benatia, Ghanem Sayes, Ashraf Hakimi, Youssef Ait bin Nasser, Amin Harit, Hakim Ziyech, Osama Idrissi, Sofiane Boufal, Youssef Al-Nusairi.

Record the results Rabat – Atlas Lions, leopards, eagles, warriors, black stars, names that may seem strange in the world of sports, but they are nicknames adopted by African football teams because of their association in the local imagination with a traditional or mythical belief, or because they reflect a form of charisma, sophistication and even elegance, to The side of strength and daring. Some continental teams may have adopted the names of animals as symbols and nicknames for them, in a sign of strength, courage and speed, and also to reflect the nature of life in the wilds and jungles. African teams, according to those who follow the “strange” phenomenon, also chose nicknames that distinguish them from others with the aim of instilling enthusiasm in the hearts of their players and fans on the one hand, and spreading fear in the hearts of the players of competing teams on the other hand. However, other formations have distanced themselves from bearing names for animals. There are “brave warriors” as the nickname of the Namibian team, “kings or stars of cults” as a designation for the Tanzania team, or “flame” as the title of the Malawi team. Observers believe that these names mean a lot to African societies and are usually part of heritage, environment or folklore (folklore), but the name of a predatory animal “is not necessarily intended to strike terror into the hearts of opponents as much as it is to show the beauty and splendor of the animal itself.” The current edition of the African Nations Cup in Cameroon is marked by the participation of many teams bearing the names of animals, ranging from untamed lions, Atlas lions, Teranga lions, leopards, eagles, Carthage eagles, to warriors, brave warriors and others. Cameroon, the host of the tournament, is nicknamed the “Untamed Lions” because the lion represents the country as a symbol of strength and ferocity, and several teams chose it as a symbol, such as Senegal, nicknamed the “Teranga Lions”. The Senegalese preferred to add the word “Teranga”, which means “hospitality” in the local language, in order to differentiate it from the rest of the teams bearing the same title. As for the Moroccan team, or “Atlas Lions”, this title goes back to the extension of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, where the lions, also called the Berber lions, lived, because of the mixture of color that distinguished their shape between dark brown and white. And the most important thing that distinguished her was also the fierceness and calmness at the same time, the largeness and strength of her body and her skills during performances. The Democratic Republic of the Congo chose the nickname “Leopards”, considering that the leopard is characterized by its high speed and ferocity while chasing its prey, and therefore the title aims to urge the Congolese players to play with all speed and strength in order to overcome the opponent. In some African myths, the cheetah is considered the king of the jungle, not the lion. In the history of the Congo, the cheetah was the royal beast, symbolizing strength, courage and pride. The Ugandan team is also called “the crane”, which was chosen because of the elegance of its external shape, and the title was shortened to “cranes” only, especially since the crane is a bird with thin feet. Since the eagle is a symbol of strength and speed, many teams have chosen it as a symbol, such as Tunisia’s national team, nicknamed “The Eagles of Carthage”, because of the country’s historical association with the Carthaginian civilization, whose national symbol was the eagle. The Mali national team has also chosen the nickname “Eagle”, which is a symbol of the country and is of great importance in folk legends there. However, the Mali national team was named “Mali Eagles”, derived from the country’s symbol. As for the Zimbabwean team, it chose the title “Warriors”, a symbol of courage, strength and ferocity in the face of opponents, a name favored by fans of the round witch and sometimes optimistic about it. The Zimbabwean national football team was formerly known as Southern Rhodesia from 1939 to 1964, then Rhodesia from 1964 to 1980, and then became Zimbabwe Rhodesia. The distinguishing features of warriors are courage, strength and team spirit in order to conquer enemies, and these features have inspired many teams to achieve victory in the game. The Namibian national team is nicknamed “Courageous Warriors,” and Namibia is the land of the brave. It is the country’s national anthem, which was written and composed by Aksali Dwissep after the country’s independence in 1991 and from which the Namibia national team derived its nickname “Courageous Warriors.” The main distinguishing features of the warriors are courage, strength and team spirit in order to conquer enemies. The Tunisian national team is called the “Eagles of Carthage”, and there is no relationship between the title and the state emblem, which bore a picture of a black lion carrying a sword, and to be proud of Carthage is to be proud of the city, which is considered the cradle of Tunisian civilization and the capital of the ancient state in the Phoenician era, so when the Tunisian team searched for a name Famous for him, he chose the nickname Al-Nusour due to the speed of movement that Tunisian players have distinguished themselves over the generations. The nicknames of the African teams, despite the strangeness of some of them, remain with a special character that distinguishes them from the rest of the teams of the continents of the world, and they all aim to give an extra charge of enthusiasm to the players and urge them to do their best, as they excelled in choosing names that reflect their strength and courage. Animal names as a sign of strength and speed, while others chose titles closely related to heroic qualities that indicate courage and combat, as well as another category that preferred to choose historical symbolism. Moroccan women’s football and the dead end in one of the green spaces in Rabat, Karima runs more than an hour a day, in order to maintain her grace and fitness, after she failed to achieve her dream and join one of the Moroccan football teams. “I was fought by everyone, from my family to my friends and teachers. This is how this twenty-year-old girl expresses her surroundings’ opposition to her playing football, hoping that one day she will be able to change the mentality of Moroccan families and help her daughters achieve their dreams. It also confirms that Moroccan women’s football suffers from many problems that prevent its development. This is also confirmed by Mohamed Al-Abdi, coach of Al-Afaq Sports Club Al-Khenifari, noting that the level reached by Moroccan women’s football is still lagging behind the countries of the Arab Maghreb. Tunisia, for example, excluded the Moroccan team because of the Tunisian Federation’s interest in women’s football and considering it an essential component in the system Professionalism and an additional element at the level of viewing in sports stadiums, according to El-Abdi, who adds that “female football in Morocco is not in the best condition as some think, as it suffers from a backwardness of male thought.” Persecution of girls in the sports field Frauenfußball in Marokko soziale Hindernisse FLASH-GALERIE Mohamed El Abdi also believes that talking about Moroccan football is mixed with sadness, grief and heartbreak over the reality that “it could have been better and constituted a future for the footballer and an addition to the football scene.” He believes that women’s football practice is divided into three levels: practice in urban areas, practice in urban areas, that is, in shantytowns, and rural practice. This coach points out that the problems that football girls suffer from are the conservative culture and the lack of infrastructure, and he continues, explaining, “For example, in the rural world, the girl faces major and complex problems. The villagers and those who are allied with the jurists in finding a justification for closing the doors in the face of the girl.” Al-Abdi also refers to the negative role of mothers in this and says: “The macho culture of women and mothers contributes to limiting the development of women’s football, as they believe that football is a male game due to its rough nature.” Al-Abdi adds that women’s football teams that practice football at the regional level suffer from financial difficulties, as most of them depend on the incomes of local groups and the help of dignitaries, which deprives girls of competitiveness and acquiring real field skills. Of the 11 leagues in Morocco, only seven organize regional football tournaments Women’s football, which is not financially supported by the Royal Football League, according to the same source, which indicates that the Royal University did not take the initiative to organize a national women’s football championship between the champion teams only during the 2001/2002 sports season after the explosion of the national team scandal The women’s team, where a group of players stated that the national team’s camps had turned into spaces for practicing homosexuality, smoking, hookah and giving bribes. The national championship remained organized in its old format until the uprising of women’s teams in 2007, when about 54 clubs tried to establish the National Women’s Football League. In order to contain the initiative of the teams, the first national championship in its new form, financially supported, was organized during the 2007/2008 sports season and witnessed great competition, especially as it was organized in two halves, which had a negative impact on the national team, which has been stagnant since its establishment in 1988. A harsh societal view and a situation Bad material Frauenfußball in Marokko soziale Hindernisse Rajae Elghazali Moroccan football player Rajae Al-Ghazali considers Rajaa, a Moroccan football player, that society’s view is still harsh towards the girl who wants to join the sports field, especially football, because they liken her to a man, which makes families prevent her daughters from practicing this activity. Raja confirmed that she knows many girls who practice this sport away from the sight of their fathers. And she adds: “In Arab countries, it is always said that a girl who plays football resembles herself to a man, so I preferred to immigrate to Spain in order to achieve my dream without the oppressive view of society.” This young Moroccan woman moved to Europe in search of the dream of fame and professionalism in conditions suitable for her ambition, after she moved among many Moroccan teams, starting with the school championship and ending with the Royal Moroccan Army team. She is in constant contact with her friends in Morocco, and thus is aware of the tragic financial conditions in their country. The reason, according to this twenty-year-old girl, is that the players do not receive their dues. In Morocco, she says, there are only three teams that offer wages in a regular manner. For her part, Mona Morchid, who plays football as an amateur in Agadir, does not find many problems, because she does not consider it a professionalism as much as she considers it an opportunity to empty it. She gives priority to her studies, and therefore she does not count on the financial support that football may provide to her, However, she does not deny that her peers who want to become professional face many problems and obstacles related mainly to the material component and technical problems. Shy interest in women’s football. As Mohamed El Abdi says, Morocco lacks technical and trained frameworks to deal with the reality of women’s football, and it lacks organization, stadiums, means of transportation and equipment. The radiance of the Moroccan team returns to prominence again globally from the gate of the World Cup in Russia, after an absence from the global football wedding that lasted for twenty years, during which Moroccan football experienced disappointments and setbacks. With the exception of the Moroccan team’s qualification to the final of the African Nations Cup in 2004 and its loss to the host of the tournament, Tunisia (1-2), the “Atlas Lions” did not achieve significant achievements during the period following their bitter exclusion from the World Cup France in 1998, as Morocco failed to qualify for the tournaments. The World Cup in 4 consecutive editions (2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014), and his participation in the African Cup tournaments was meager, until Moroccans used to watch their country’s team come out of the first rounds in the most expensive tournaments on the continent. After setbacks and disappointments, the good news came to Moroccan fans from Russia, after the Moroccan team was able to reserve the ticket to participate in the World Cup tournament to be held this summer in 11 Russian cities. The second participation in the 1986 World Cup, the most prominent memory that remained stuck in the hearts of Moroccans, old and young, is the World Cup Mexico 1986, in which the Moroccan team achieved its best achievements ever in the history of its participation in the World Cup, by qualifying to the second round after making the event, and leading its group, after a draw In two matches against the English and Polish national teams, and the victory over the Portuguese team by three goals for the goal (the double of Abdel Razak Khairy and the goal of Miri), Morocco will be the first Arab and African team to reach the second round of the World Cup. And fate decreed that the Moroccan team collide in the second round with the German machines, the first team at the time in Europe, which included the most prominent players who are still Germans singing their glory, such as Lothar Matthaus, Voller, Rummenge and goalkeeper Schumacher .. But despite the strength of the Germans, the lions presented a good show He dazzled the spectators, before they were narrowly defeated by a goal in the last minutes of the match, through a free kick by the player Mateus.

In his three matches, the first against Belgium (0-1), the second against the Saudi national team (1-2), and the last against the Netherlands (1-2). The fourth participation in the 1998 World Cup, the Moroccan team regained its prestige in the World Cup in France, and presented an elegant performance in the group stage. After a draw against Norway with two goals for the same, (the goals of Mustafa Hajji and Abdel Jalil Heda), and a logical defeat against the Brazilian team by three, the Moroccan team defeated the Scottish team with three goals. Goals without response, signed by Abdel Jalil Hedda and Salah El-Din Basir on two occasions. But the shocking scenario of the other match that brought Norway and Brazil together in the same group, which ended in an unexpected defeat for the “samba” dancers, hastened the exit of the Atlas Lions from the group stage in a “bitter and disappointing” manner. The fifth participation in the World Cup Russia 2018, although the draw for the World Cup Russia put the Moroccan team in an iron group that includes the teams of Iran, Spain, and Portugal, the idea of ​​​​football does not know the impossible, and Morocco’s chances remain to overcome the group stage and repeat the scenario of the 1986 World Cup, and rid the Moroccans of the World Cup nightmare France that accompanied them For two decades.
