Rabat – Morocco beat Slovakia (2-1) Monday in Geneva in a World Cup warm-up.
After their draw against Ukraine (0-0) last Thursday in their first pre-World Cup game, the national team has raised the bar, scoring double against Slovakia (2-1), Monday night in Geneva, Switzerland.
For the second pre-World Cup game, the national team made quite the impression by beating Slovakia thanks to goals from Ayoub El Kaabi (63’) and Younes Belhanda (74’).
Jan Gregus opened the scoring for Slovakia in the 59th minute, but El Kaabi equalized five minutes later. Midfielder Younes Belhanda scored the second goal for Morocco (74th min).
On social media, Moroccan supporters seemed to be satisfied by the Atlas Lions, praising especially El Kaabi and Harit.
The next match of the Atlas Lions will take place on June 9 against Estonia on their home turf, six days before Morocco’s first World Cup match against Iran on June 15.
The Atlas Lions will play against Portugal in their second game on June 20 and against Spain on June 25 in Morocco’s final first-round match.
