Morocco Portraits - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Morocco World Cup Squad Photos

The Atlas Lions’ captain, Medhi Benatia, is a central defender who plays for a powerhouse Juventus squad. The team’s coach, Herve Renard, is a defensive specialist with an impressive international resume. And the team did not allow a single goal during six World Cup qualifying matches. But all of that may not be enough to stop the supercharged offenses Morocco will face in Spain and Portugal. Two midfielders who play in the Dutch Eredivisie — Ajax’s Hakin Ziyech and Feyenoord’s Karim El Ahmadi — will be asked to raise their games in the center of the pitch.

Here, portraits of all 23 players on the 2018 World Cup squad.
