Supporters feel the former Ajax Amsterdam player showed why he should be starting for the West London club

Fans have praised Hakim Ziyech for turning up when it mattered in Morocco’s 2-0 win over Belgium on Sunday.

The Chelsea player was at the heart of the attack for Morocco and created the second goal for his country, leaving a good impression on supporters.

While some feel he is being wasted by Chelsea, where he rarely starts matches, some are thankful that he was recalled to the Atlas Lions squad just in time for the World Cup, following his self-imposed exile after disagreements with former coach Vahid Halilhodzic.
