First match and first victory for the U20 national team at the Arab Football Championship (UAFA). The Cubs defeated Bahrain in Riyadh on Monday (4-2). A good start to competition before facing Madagascar and Djibouti.
Led by new coach Joao Filipe Arozo, the U20 national team began their journey in the Arab Football Union’s U20 Arab Championship on Monday in Riyadh with a large 4-2 victory over the Bahrain squad. Amine Sahel unlocked the counter for Morocco by scoring the first goal in the 26th minute. His teammate Moutassim Haïtami doubled the bet a few minutes later (39th). At the start of the second period, Bahrain’s selection managed to restore parity to the achievements of Al Saïd Jawad (56th) and Salem Salem (63rd). A short-lived joy, since Anouar El Azzouzi (70th) and Omar Amrani (89th) widen the score for Morocco at the end of the game. After this success, the Lion Cubs temporarily took the lead in group B, pending the other group matches.
