Announced pending arrival in the Moroccan selection this Friday, Amine Adli should not be part of the next gathering of the Atlas Lions.
This Friday, the media Al Araby announced that the attacking midfielder from Bayer Leverkusen (6 goals and 6 assists in 34 appearances this season in all competitions) would have agreed to join the Moroccan team, as did Brahim Diaz, the attacking midfielder from Real Madrid on loan to AC Milan (6 goals and 4 offerings in 40 games this season). Something to pack the supporters of the Atlas Lions, of course.
Except that, according to the specialized account Soccer212, it is not so. Indeed, according to the media always well informed on the news of Moroccan football, the former Toulousain and the Rossonero will not appear in the list of coach Walid Regragui, for the meetings of the next international window.

No Brahim Diaz either
Thus, the 23-year-old left-hander, who has six selections and three goals with the France Espoirs team, should not play in the friendly meeting between Morocco and Cape Verde scheduled for June 12, let alone the confrontation with South Africa on June 17, counting for the fifth day of qualifying for the African Cup of Nations (CAN) 2023. The same goes for the Hispano- Moroccan Brahim Diaz, not called up to the Spanish selection since June 8, 2021 (1 cap) and who recently cast a chill over his arrival in Morocco.
As a reminder, the semi-finalist of the last World Cup, leader of his group with two victories in as many matches, is already qualified for the final phase of CAN 2023 in Côte d’Ivoire, scheduled from January 13 to February 11, 2024.
