The national team was disappointed by its level of play in front of the American selection in a friendly match in Cincinnati on the night of Wednesday to Thursday. A few months before the launch of the 2022 World Cup, Morocco conceded a worrying defeat against the United States (3-0).
he American football team took the best Wednesday in Cincinnati on the Moroccan selection, by 3 goals to 0, in a friendly match within the framework of the preparations of the two countries with the next world cup in Qatar.
The three goals for the Stars and Stripes were scored by Brenden Aaronson (27th), Tim Weah (32nd) and Haji Wright (64th), as the Atlas lions missed the opportunity to reduce the mark on a missed penalty by Salim Amallah.
Weah’s teammates, who played a pleasant game by showing more cohesion and consistency, in turn, missed many serious chances, both by haste or because of Yassine Bounou’s parries.
With this big victory, Team USA gets its revenge against the Atlas Lions, despite being supported throughout the match by a large audience, in national colors, from different American states and Canada. The national eleven had won the three previous duels, also disputed in friendly.
This Wednesday’s meeting, played in front of 19,500 supporters, clearly serves as a “real test” for coach Vahid Halilhodzic and his foals a few months before the planetary football meeting.
The teammates of captain Romain Saïss will have to compete beforehand in the qualifiers for the 2023 African Cup of Nations, respectively against South Africa, on June 9 in Rabat, and Liberia, on June 13 in Casablanca.
