Feyenoord player Idrissi back in Moroccan selection after more than three years
Feyenoord left winger Oussama Idrissi has been called up again for the Moroccan selection after three and a half years. The 27-year-old striker played youth internationals for the Netherlands and then chose Morocco. He played seven internationals for the semifinalist at the last World Cup.
Idrissi is enjoying a strong phase at Feyenoord, which is renting him from Sevilla this season. In total, he scored four goals in 26 games this season. In those, he also provided six assists.
When Idrissi was last called up for Morocco, he played for AZ. He went on to play for FC Groningen, Sevilla and Ajax.
Other selection members
Moroccan national coach Walid Regragui also called up five other players with ties to Dutch soccer. Hakim Ziyech (Chelsea), Noussair Mazraoui (Bayern Munich), Sofyan Amrabat (Fiorentina), Zakaria Aboukhlal (Toulouse) and Tarik Tissoudali (KAA Gent) are also part of the selection.
Morocco will play Cape Verde on June 12 and South Africa on June 17.
Idrissi first plays with Feyenoord against Vitesse on Sunday.
