Double delight for Amine Harit on Monday

It was a busy Monday for Amine Harit and Morocco. Just hours after announcing the final squad for the World Cup, of which the Royal Blue was a part, the team was taking on Slovakia in a pre-tournament friendly, allowing Harit to celebrate his inclusion in the team by playing 45 minutes in his country’s 2-1 win.

Harit came off the bench for the second half of the game in Geneva, with the score at 0-0. Jan Gregus gave Slovakia the lead, but goals from Ayoub El Kaabi and former Schalke player Younes Belhanda gave Morocco, who will face Spain, Portugal and Iran in Russia, the win.

The final test for Hervé Renard’s men before the start of the tournament will be this Saturday against Estonia. Kick off is at 18:00CEST.
