A starter in the midfield of the Morocco national team in the friendly match against Niger on Tuesday night, Adel Taarabt was also the team skipper and made the pass for the goal that handed the victory.
Back in the Moroccan national team after five years of absence – he had already played 28 minutes against Burkina Faso on September 6... –, the Benfica midfielder has put in and balanced and inspiring display in the match against Niger. From Taarabt's right foot came the pass for El Karti's monumental goal in the 21st minute of the encounter held at the Marrakesh Stadium, in Morocco.
At 76', Taarabt was replaced by Tuhami, and the public, pleased with the display from the Benfica player, marked the moment with an ovation.
