It was supposed to be a press conference with Vahid, but in the end it was with Walid. Vahid Halilhodžić was fired and the new coach of Morocco took his place Walid Reragui, brought back the bad boy of Moroccan football Hakima Ziyecha

– We know what awaits us, the runner-up of the world from the last World Cup, we have a tough match ahead of us, but we also know our qualities. We have seen many of their matches and we know what awaits us – said coach Regragui.

Captain of Morocco Romain Saiss he emphasized.

– Croatia is a very high-quality team. We have to show what we know on the field – said the Besiktas defender.

Who is the favorite? Do you have a special stopping tactic Luka Modrić?

– Croatia is definitely the favorite. She showed that at the last World Cup. It has Luka who was Ballon d’Or. We will try to focus on our players. It would be a big mistake to think only about Modric. We have to play our own, Moroccan football – said the coach.

Is it an advantage for Morocco to play in Qatar?

– I hope it will be like that. There is a huge Moroccan community here, especially in Doha. We know that our people here support us. We feel like we are playing at home. That motivates us. Thank God that there are so many Moroccans in Katra – said coach Regragui.

How important is Ziyech?

– It is not important only for me, but for the whole team and for Chelsea. He is a great player. This country needs him, I hope that with God’s help he will do a lot for our team – said coach Regragui.

– You will see the best of Hakim on the field – Saiss is convinced.

He spoke to Regragua and about his predecessor, but said that he did not receive any information about Croatia from him.

– I have great respect for Halilhodžić. The fact that I am here is proof of his abilities. I thank him on behalf of the entire Moroccan people. We all know Croatia, then it is one of the best national teams in the world. Croatia is a big bite. We have a great team, players. The opponent is inconvenient, but I wouldn’t want us to have the feeling that we just missed something like at the World Cup in 2018 – said Regragui.
