Morocco coach dares Spain

Africa’s last team standing Morocco face an uphill task against a much-fancied side, Spain in the battle for quarterfinals spot today.

Morocco national team coach

Morocco coach Walid Regragui has dared his side to believe that they can defeat the European giants. Morocco would become the fourth African team to reach the quarterfinals after Cameroon (1990), Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010).

Regragui noted that they want to make all Africans and Arabs happy following the strong backing of support in the group stages noting that previously, only Moroccans supported the team.

"We'll come out swinging," said Regragui.

"We want to hoist the Moroccan flag way up high. We're playing first and foremost for us and our country.

"All Arabs and Africans, we want to make them happy. We want their prayers and we want their support so it can give us that extra ingredient to win. Before it was just the Moroccans that supported us."

Spain are high-flying at the tournament beating Costa Rica 7-0 in their World Cup opener. They then drew with Germany and lost against South Korea.
