Football: Imane Saoud abandons France for Morocco


Moroccan footballer Imane Saoud, who plays for FC Basel, has decided to play for the Moroccan women’s national team. While many believed she would choose to wear the colors of France, she ultimately opted for her home country.

“The selection is always a great experience, whether with Morocco or France. In any case, I wear the same jersey. Both are my countries, and I am here to make countries proud, whether it is Morocco or France. No matter who calls me, I would give just as much, “she told Taja sport a few days ago. In the end, his choice fell on Morocco.

She also explained the reasons why she opted for Morocco which, according to her statements, meets her sporting aspirations. “In Morocco they want to develop women’s football and they are putting the resources into it. The Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (CAN 2022) will be held in Morocco soon (the final phase of the tournament is scheduled in Morocco from July 2 to 23, 2022). The country is preparing to host it and for the national team to win it. Because she qualifies for the 2023 World Cup in Australia, “said the 19-year-old midfielder.
