the Morocco team receives terrible news!

Algeria Football – A few months before the start of the 2025 African Cup of Nations (CAN), the Moroccan team receives terrible news.

Absent during the match against Congo (6-0 victory) during the 4th day of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Romain Saïss, the captain of the Morocco team, could soon announce his international retirement.

According to the media Al Araby, the 33-year-old Moroccan defender is seriously considering ending his career in the national team. The main reason behind this decision would be his desire to make way for the younger generation of Moroccan talents.

During his absence against Congo, Saïss was replaced by Chadi Riad, who shone alongside Nayef Aguerd and even scored a goal. This performance demonstrated that Riad could be the ideal successor to Saïss within the national team.

Rumors regarding Saïss’ retirement had already circulated before CAN 2023. However, the former Wolverhampton player had chosen to continue to participate in this competition, where Morocco was eliminated in the round of 16.

The potential departure of Romain Saïss would mark the end of an era for the Atlas Lions, but would also pave the way for young talent to take over and take the team to new heights. Moroccan fans are now eagerly awaiting an official announcement to find out what the future holds for their iconic captain.
