The Moroccan delegation was received with deserved honours, by the Local Organising Committee (COCAN), in that paradisiacal tourist spot of Vilankulo, Mozambique.
The Morocco national team head coach, the Senegalese Oumar Ngalla Sylla, came with him a squad composed of 15 players deployed for this mission. For this edition, Sylla decided to go without one of the most experienced Atlas Lions in the team: captain Nassim El Sadaoui.
Along with Morocco, Mozambique is the team that has also been on the stage of emotions since last Friday. The two teams anticipated their arrival in Vilankulo by three days, the city which will host the current edition of the Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations from 21 to 28 October.
On Monday, CAF delegation composed, among others, of referees and match commissioners is expected to arrive as well as the remaining teams.
