Morocco coach Walid Regragui: “We showed Croatia too much respect.”

Speaking to beIN Sport, as quoted by Le Matin, Morocco coach Walid Regragui assessed his team’s opening draw with Croatia at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, explaining the 0-0 draw, in which the Atlas Lions impressed against a strong Croatia side, was a “good result.” Regragui said:

“Honestly, we were up against a great team. They have a very strong midfield. We tried to work as a team but we perhaps respected them too much at times. We were tired at the end but it’s a good result… We are still in the race [for the last 16] but it’s a shame, the few opportunities we had, we didn’t take them, and we made a lot of technical mistakes in midfield too. We have four days left to work and recover now.”

Morocco face Belgium on November 27th in their next Group F encounter in Qatar.
