Chelsea midfielder Ziyech thrilled to make Morocco's World Cup squad

Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech is thrilled to make the Morocco’s World Cup squad.

The winger, 29, vowed to never play for his country again after a falling out with old boss Vahid Halilhodzic.

He missed out at the Africa Cup of Nations and before September’s fixtures against Chile and Paraguay, he hadn’t featured for Morocco since June 2021.

Halilhodzic is now old news and Walid Regragui is in charge.

And Regragui will lead Morocco into Qatar with Ziyech firmly in his plans.

Morocco will contest World Cup Group F alongside Croatia, Belgium and Canada.

And Ziyech has taken to Instagram to say he is “honoured” to play for his country at the winter tournament.
