This evening, Morocco and Mali meet in the second semi-final of the CAN U23, currently underway in Morocco.
Badara Alou Diallo, the Guneas’ coach, said in his pre-match press briefing:
“The players know each other very well. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to a few Moroccans through my boys.
Most of them meet in Europe. On Tuesday, they’ll be playing each other on the pitch and I can tell you that the bickering has already started.
These are two teams that are used to meeting each other. The key to this match will be to stay focused throughout. We have to avoid making the mistakes we’re used to making.
