The nightmare for the Moroccan national football team and for all the coaching staff is over:
The whole group was able to leave Guinea on Sunday evening. With a plane, players and staff are now flying to Casablanca.
This was communicated by the Guinean football federation with a tweet. For this Monday, the meeting valid for the qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar 2022 between Guinea and Morocco was scheduled during the day, however, an attempted coup by the Guinean military had seriously jeopardized the safety of all the citizens of the area, including the players and the technical staff of Morocco who had reached Conakry, the country’s capital in the morning.
Due to the riots and for security reasons, the entire selection of Morocco was blocked in a hotel in the city a few kilometers from the presidential palace, which was stormed by the special forces of the military. The situation was worrying, as Morocco coach Halihodzic was able to reveal to the French daily L’Equipe a few hours ago:
“The players are not reassured, there is concern. We hear gunshots from 10 this morning. . The Moroccan authorities are very busy helping us. I hope we will be back in Morocco before the evening.Tomorrow’s match has already been canceled, it was reported that there is a possibility that the match will be played in Morocco, but I don’t know. “.
Fortunately, on Sunday evening players and staff were able to board a plane that brought them back to Casablanca. An epilogue not so obvious or obvious until a few hours ago. The game was officially postponed to a later date but this had now become the minor problem.
