Renard welcomes Idrissi’s commitment to Morocco

AZ Alkmaar’s Oussama Idrissi could make his debut for Morocco against Malawi next month.

Morocco’s head coach, Herve Renard, has welcomed the decision by Dutch-born winger Oussama Idrissi to represent the Atlas Lions despite having played at youth level for the Netherlands.

Idrissi, 22, who plays for Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, was called-up by Morocco in November 2018 without featuring in the team, but has now decided to compete for the country of his parents.

“Congratulations. Oussama Idrissi has decided to play with Morocco national team,” Renard tweeted.
