While Iran won’t be having much star power backing their line up, Morocco will have quite a few key players willing to play the role of a game changer. Here is a brief on how the lineups of both the sides may line up against each other.
Not a single player in Iran’s current roster hails from any major European league, but still, Iran managed to qualify for the World Cup which speaks volumes of how talented their squad is. While Captain Ashkan Dejagah looks after the midfield, Jalal Hosseini and Morteza Pouraliganji will be the key in Iran’s defense. The attack will be pitted heavily on their number 10 Karim Ansarifard.
35 Man Squad
Alireza Beiranvand, Seyed Hossein Hosseini, Rashid Mazaheri, Amir Abedzadeh; Ramin Rezaeian, Voria Ghafouri, Steven Beitashour, Seyed Jalal Hosseini, Mohammad Reza Khanzadeh, Morteza Pouraliganji, Mohammad Ansari, Pejman Montazeri, Seyed Majid Hosseini, Milad Mohammadi, Omid Norafkan, Saeid AGhaei, Roozbeh Cheshmi; Saeid Ezatolahi, Masoud Shojaei, Ahmad Abdolahzadeh, Saman Ghoddos, Mahdi Torabi, Ashkan Dejagah, Omid Ebrahimi, Ehsan Hajsafi, Ali Karimi, Soroush Rafiei, Ali Gholizadeh, Vahid Amiri; Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Karim Ansarifard, Mahdi Taremi, Sardar Azmoun, Reza Ghoochannejhad, Kaveh Rezaei
Morocco’s line up looks much more settled than their opponents with many players hailing from top European Leagues. Real Madrid’s Achraf Hakimi and Captain Medhi Benatia will be nothing less than a wall to crack for Iran’s attackers. The midfield will have many key players with Vice Captain Mbark Boussoufa and Sofiane Boufal leading the pack. The only thing Morocco will lack is a proper striker with Youssef El-Arabi being their most experienced option available.
Mounir El Kajoui, Yassine Bounou, Ahmad Reda Tagnaouti, Mehdi Benatia, Romain Saiss, Manuel Da Costa, Badr Benoun, Nabil Dirar, Achraf Hakimi, Hamza Mendyl; M’bark Boussoufa, Karim El Ahmadi, Youssef Ait Bennasser, Sofyan Amrabat, Younes Belhanda, Faycal Fajr, Amine Harit; Khalid Boutaib, Aziz Bouhaddouz, Ayoub El Kaabi, Nordin Amrabat, Mehdi Carcela, Hakim Ziyech
It will be more of Iran’s attack against Morocco’s defense and if Morocco manages to capitalize and score from a counter, it will undoubtedly be ending in their favor. So, the scoreline is expected to be 2-0 to Morocco.
