The Moroccan national football team, which made history by becoming the first African and Arab team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar, will face Brazil in Tangier on Saturday. This will be Brazil’s first game on Moroccan land and they will be without star player Neymar due to ankle surgery. The Brazilian team will be led by temporary coach Ramon Menezes and is likely to feature a young squad as they enter a new era of football. Morocco, on the other hand, will rely on a squad of players who made their mark at the World Cup, including goalkeeper Yassine Bono and midfielder Hakim Ziyech. The match will be played at the 65,000 capacity Ibn Battuta Stadium, which was also the venue for two matches in the last Club World Cup.
