After the strong performance of the Moroccan national team in the group stage of the World Cup, its coach Walid Regragui expressed his desire to win the most powerful tournament in the world of football and not just reach the round of 16.

Rekragui spoke at a press conference held on Thursday, following the end of the third and final match in Group F of the Qatar World Cup, where the Atlas Lions defeated Canada 2-1.

Rekragui said, "We set a goal to make every effort to pass the first round. Now why not dream of winning the World Cup?"

He continued, "We will not stop here, but I think we have sent a message that we are a difficult team to beat."

The Moroccan national team coach said: "When I see our team, we snatched a deserved draw from Croatia and beat Belgium and Canada, which has a good team and everyone admired it since the first match. We are realistic and we have a good team and we will deal with each match separately, we will regain our fitness."

He added, "And if we are at the top of our level, we can do great things. What I am trying to instill in the national team is that we resemble European teams in playing with African values and mixing them. I believe that this is the future football with African technical qualifications and the tactical rigor of the African teams, which makes it difficult to win." We.

And he added, "It is the morale of the players that matters to me. They trusted my qualifications and are fighting for their country."

Morocco qualified for the Round of 16 with merit, as it topped Group F with 7 points, without any loss, and qualified with Croatia, while Belgium and Canada exited the competition.

Morocco had reached the round of 16 before that in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
