Morocco coach Walid Regragui, in the announcement of the duel for third place against Croatia at the World Cup in Qatar, pointed out that his team is highly motivated to achieve a historic result for the whole of African football.
“We are the Rocky Balboa of the World Cup and like real long-distance runners, we still have a lot to show. We’re out of contention for the top prize, but we’ll be back, just like Rocky always is. Here Rocky has made it to number seven, so we’ll be around for a while too. However, we want to finish here with a win. Winning third place means being on the podium, which is very important for the country. We will do our best to make it happen”, said Regragui.
Whatever happens in the match against Croatia, Morocco has already made an incredible result.
“The result is clear, we are the best African team in history. We reached the semi-finals, but we faced some of the best teams in Europe. People will remember us for our state of mind, and human qualities, because we have shown values and that we have a lot of desires. This is a team that will be remembered for a long time”.
The match for third place between Morocco and Croatia will be played from 16:00.
