This is news that will give hope to Morocco! Reflecting on its international future, the nugget of PSV Eindhoven, Mohammed Ihattaren (17 years old), recently declined his first convocation with Morocco in asking for time before making his choice. And the winger has adopted exactly the same attitude with the Netherlands. While wearing the colors of Oranje in U19 as recently as last March, the native of Utrecht did not follow up his last summons with the selection Dutch Espoirs.
"Mohamed Ihattaren, who was on the provisional list, was not included in the final selection at his own request. After consultation with the Dutch Federation and the PSV, Ihattaren decided not to be available. The attacker said he wanted to think peacefully about his future as an international. U21 coach Erwin van de Looi said: 'We would have liked to call him for this qualifier against Cyprus, but we respect his choice'", Said the Dutch Federation on its official site.
In other words, Morocco does have a card to play in this file!
