While Morocco swears by the nugget Lamine Yamal and his choice of selection is often summed up in a duel between the Atlas Lions and Spain, his mother, Sheila Ebana, has just vetoed.
Tired of the rumors that insistently send her son to the Morocco team or La Roja, Sheila Ebana, the mother of
Lamine Yamal (15 years old)split a sensational declaration which will undoubtedly not please the supporters of the Atlas Lions.
“I see all the messages and comments but I prefer not to comment, my son is Equatoguinean and my child I took him to the country. It hurts me that people say he’s not (Equatoguinean), he’s only 15 and he needs to be given time to grow up.”said mom Yamal, of Equatorial Guinean origin, to the platform News Guinea World.
Yamal with Morocco? It’s no for Sheila!
It was enough to trigger strong reactions among many Moroccan fans. The latter have indeed opposed a categorical no to the request made by the mother of the young Barça crack (1 appearance in La Liga this season). “No, he is Moroccan on my file”, “But what is he going to do there? Leave your son alone”, can we read in particular in comments on Twitter. It is true that the Nzalang Nacional, only 94th nation in the world in the FIFA rankings, may find it difficult to compete with Spain and Morocco, respectively 10th and 11th.

For the record, the one who became the youngest in history to play a professional match with Barça on April 29 (4-0 victory over Bétis Sevilla), would have given his agreement to play with the selection coached by Walid Regragui. The principal concerned would have previously offended the officials of the Spanish Football Federation who were trying to lure him into their hands.
