Morocco head coach confirms Brahim Diaz is reflecting on international future

By Oliver Fisher -

Brahim Diaz is taking time to decide on his future at international level and more specifically which country he will represent moving forward.

As MilanNews report, Brahim Diaz has not been called up by Walid Regragui for Morocco’s next matches as the surprise package of the World Cup in Qatar will face Brazil and Peru in friendlies at the end of March.

It was the head coach himself who explained the reasons behind this in a press conference, confirming that he has spoken to the playmaker but didn’t want to apply too much pressure on him.

“I went to Milan to meet Brahim Diaz. He has dual nationality and there was a sincere chat, he was honest. There are no negotiations but he has asked for a period of reflection to decide between us and Spain. He loves Morocco but it will be his decision,” he said.

Brahim played as a youth international for Spain and made his first appearances at age 16, then impressing with good performances for Spain’s U17s in the 2016 UEFA European Under-17 Championship.

Back in 2021 a number of U21 players were called up to play for the senior national team due to a wave of positive Covid cases in the camp meaning Brahim made his debut in a 4-0 victory against Lithuania and scored the second goal. However, he still has just one cap.
