We’ve made our people happy and proud, says Moroccan coach Regragui

DOHA: Morocco coach Walid Regragui is on cloud nine after the Atlast Lions beat Portugal 1-0 to set up a mouth-watering clash with France in the semifinals on Wednesday.

Youssef En Nesyri’s scored the first-half headed winner at the Al Thumama Stadium on Saturday evening.

“We are becoming a team everyone loves because we are showing what we can achieve,” said Regragui.

“If you show the passion, heart and belief, you can succeed and my players have shown that. It is not a miracle – those in Europe might say it is, but we have beaten Portugal, Spain, Belgium and drawn against Croatia without conceding. That is the result of hard work.

“African and Arab teams work hard but we have made our people happy and proud. The whole continent is proud. When you watch Rocky Balboa, you want to support him and we are the Rocky of this World Cup.”
