Choosing Spain over Morocco

The official call of Lamin Yamal to the Spanish camp this September means that Morocco’s chances of getting his services are over.

According to the Catalan newspaper Sport, Yamal chose to represent Spain because of his trust in the Spanish Football Association, as well as because he had previously represented various young Sunni Laforea Roja groups.
