Morocco host Cape Verde at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat on Monday for an international friendly
The Atlas Lions will use this as an opportunity to prepare for the resumption of the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualification a few days later.
Walid Regragui’s side have already qualified for the tournament after winning both of their group games so far. Their campaign ends on June 17 in South Africa, where Morocco will be looking to end qualification with a 100% record intact.
The North African side have called up 28 players for this month, which will include some big names such as Achraf Hakimi, Youssef En-Nesyri, Hakim Ziyech and Yassine Bounou.
There are also five uncapped players in the squad.
AFCON qualification is also coming up in Cape Verde after this friendly and their qualification is yet to be confirmed. The Blue Sharks are currently second in Group B with seven points, three ahead of Burkina Faso after four matches.
However, the island side only need a draw against the group leaders they will face in the next qualifier to officially secure their place in the finals of the tournament.
Head coach Bubista has named a 27-man squad for this month’s matches, including their all-time leading scorer Ryan Mendes, who needs one more goal to become their joint all-time top scorer.
