El Hamdaoui plots Moroccan improvement



Mounir El Hamdaoui already knows what needs to be improved upon by Morocco ahead of their match against Cape Verde and admits he is in the right mental frame of mind.

The Atlas Lions failed to take a hold of the opportunity to move into first place in Group A after they mirrored the result of the curtain raiser between South Africa and Cape Verde.

He believes that his side’s failure to find the back of the net was due to a lack of a through ball and is calling for improvement in that department.

“I think the last passes have to be good. We have some good possession play but in the end, it is the last pass that is not very good. I think we have to work on that,” he says.

Injury has seen the striker come and go from the national team set-up but he reveals he is in the right place in his career to serve Morocco.

“Mentally I am always good and that is the most important thing. I am happy. I am happy to play where I am now.

“It is nice to be here, it is nice to play football for your country and it is nice to play in the African Cup so we are happy to be here,” El Hamdaoui concludes.

Morocco will kick-off against Cape Verde at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday at 8pm CAT.
