The coach of Morocco, Walid Regraguiexplained in the press conference, after the victory over Belgium, the mysterious change of goalkeeper Yassine Bonowho left the field just after singing the anthem, an image that went viral on social networks.
Bono warmed up beforehand and lined up with the team, but while the anthem was sung, it looked complicated and a photograph captured the moment in which he leaned a little, resting his hands on his knees. Later, she told the technician that he was not well and Munir El Kajou entered in his place, taking the official photo with the team.
🇲🇦 Le gardien du Maroc Yassine Bono était présent sur le terrain pendant l’hymne national. Mais c’est pourtant Munir qui a débuté le match dans les cages marocaines face à Belgique. A changement de dernière minute pour le moins mystérieux.

“He took a hit against Croatia. I wasn’t sure, we tried until the end. After the warm-up, he did not feel well, he felt unwell. He had the honesty to leave his place to someone else,” the coach explained at the press conference.
“That’s what I said. If you don’t feel 100 percent, you have to leave your place. Yassine understood this. Munir played a great match.”Regragui asserted.
