Indeed, two friendlies await the Atlas Lions in September. A match against Burkina Fasso and another shock against Niger.
Alongside the regulars Mehdi Benatia, Marouane Da Costa, Nabil Dirar, Ghanem Saiss, Karim El Ahmadi, Nordin Amrabat and Hakim Ziyech, the list of Halilhodzic is especially marked by the summoning of players from the Botola.
They are Anass Zniti (RCA), Omar Boutaib (RCA), Mohamed Nahiri (WAC), Badr Banoun (RCA), Saad Lagro (OCK), Abdelkrim Baadi (HUSA), Yahya Jabrane (WAC), Walid El Karti (WAC), Mehdi Oubila (HUSA), Zakaria Hadraf and Abdelilah Hafidi (RCA), Reda Tagnaouti and Ismail El Haddad (WAC).
