New Morocco head coach Vahid Halilhodzic has named 46 players in his first squad for their training camp in September, where they are expected to face Burkina Faso and Niger.
The Atlas Lions were eliminated by Benin in the Round of 16, which was disappointing for fans that billed them as pre-tournament favourites.
Halilhodzic’s first squad includes regulars like Hakim Ziyech, Mehdi Benatia, Romain Saiss and Nordin Amrabat, while Manchester City youngster Nail Touaizi was among the plethora of players invited as the new coach seeks to assess a large squad.
Injured Zamalek forward Khalid Boutaib hasn’t been left out regardless of his current status, as well as Al Ahly’s Walid Azarou. Schalke midfielder Amine Harit will also join up with the national team next month after his inclusion.
