Sofiane Rahimi, Mohamed Chibi of AS Far and Badr Benoun of Al Ahly SC have all been called up to join the Atlas Lions squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The three players have been called up to complete the final list of players selected by Coach Vahid Halilhodžić.
The coach had earlier made public a list of 25 players and the addition of Sofiane will definitely be a boaster for a team hoping for their second title after winning it back in 2004.
Sofiane Rahimi who currently plays for Al Ain FC will be one of the most dangerous players in the competition and if Morocco intends to go further in the competition, Rahimi’s shooting will need to find its target like it did back at the 2020 Africa Nations Championship hosted by Cameroon.
Rahimi was on sensilating form finishing as the top scorer of the championship with five goals and also bagged home the best player of the tournament.
