The final Morocco AFCON squad for the finals is yet to be announced. But we can expect some of the most famous players to be involved.

Morocco AFCON 2024 Predictions
Let’s take a look at a few predictions about how Morocco will do.
Although there are some very good teams qualified for next year’s finals, Morocco has been placed in pot 1 for the group stage draw. That means that they will definitely avoid the likes of host nation Ivory Coast, Algeria, and holders Senegal.
Progress to the Knockout Stage
Even finishing third in the group could mean progress to the round of 16. As a top seed, Morocco should not have too much problem achieving that.
Morocco have not made it further than the quarterfinals since 2004.
But after their incredible showing at last year’s World Cup, big things will be expected of the Atlas Lions. Making the semi-finals at least is probably the target for Walid Regragui.

That was back in 1976 in Ethiopia. Morocco did make it to the final in 2006 but lost to hosts Tunisia.
The last three editions of AFCON have seen Morocco make it to the quarterfinals twice and exit at the round of 16 once. There will be a lot of pressure on the team to do better next year.
