FIFA rejected the participation of Mounir El Haddadi, a Seville player, with the Moroccan national team, despite changing laws last month.
The international organization had set flexible conditions on the matter of allowing players to change their national teams, and all matters referred to the possibility of representing Al-Haddadi for the “Atlas Lions” team.
The “Associated Press” agency revealed that there is a condition of FIFA to wear another national team shirt, and this condition does not fall under the Moroccan striker.
The new conditions stipulate that the player should not play more than 3 matches with the national team, that these matches should not be in an important tournament, and that at least 3 years have passed since his participation with his country, and that he should not be like his country after reaching the twenty-first year.
Mounir Al-Haddadi’s problem lies in his participation in September, October and November 2016 with the Spain U-21 team in the European Nations Qualifiers.
It is clear from this that Mounir is banned from representing the Moroccan national team because he participated with the Spanish matador, and now in light of the flexibility of the laws, he will not be able to play with the “Atlas Lions” after his participation with the Spain under-21 national team and over the age of twenty-one.
And the International Federation of FIFA gives the right to Mounir Al-Haddadi to appeal this decision before the Sports Court.
And the “@ SCCR_212” account on “Twitter” published a clip hours ago in which Vahid Halilodzic confirmed that Mounir El-Haddadi has not yet obtained permission to play with Morocco, without giving further information on this subject.
The same account returned and an urgent news was published in which it refuted the news of FIFA’s refusal to represent Al-Haddadi for the Moroccan national team, according to a source from the Moroccan Football Association.
Al-Haddadi (25 years), after being summoned to the list of the Moroccan national team, expressed his happiness with this decision.
It is noteworthy that the “Atlas Lions” will play two friendly matches, one against Senegal on Friday October 9th, and the second against the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the 13th of the same month.
