5 Best Morocco Players in World Cup 2022

Here we look into the top 5 Moroccan players in the Morocco Potential Squad who could make a huge impact in the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

#1 Achraf Hakimi 

At the top of our list is the obvious choice, the PSG star wing-back Achraf Hakimi. The 23-year-old is one of the world’s best in his position. Achraf Hakimi is an essential player for the French giants and is expected to play a crucial role for Morocco in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Hakimi is magnificent going forward down the right wing. So far, he has scored 2 goals and an assist in the Ligue 1 this season.

#2 Hakim Ziyech  

The Chelsea veteran Hakim Ziyech could return with a bang for Morocco in the Qatar World Cup. Despite struggling for minutes in his club, the 29-year-old winger could prove to be a key man in Morocco’s attack.

#3 Sofiane Boufal    

Sofiane Boufal has been in good touch for the Ligue 1 side Anger. The 29-year-old striker will look to carry the momentum in the World Cup and find the back of the net for his nation.

Boufal has scored 3 goals and assisted another 3 in 10 games in the Ligue 1 this season.

#4 Noussair Mazraoui 

With Hakimi occupying the right-back slot, Mazraoui could do the same on the left side. The 24-year-old Bayern Munich wing-back is good going forward and can provide dangerous crosses into the box.

#5 Yassine Bounou

Moroccan fans can rely on the safe hands of Yassine Bounou. The Sevilla shot-stopper will be the first-choice goalkeeper for Walid Regragui. A lot of Moroccan success in the World Cup will depend on the 31-year-old.
