King Mohammed VI sent a message of congratulations to the members of the national futsal team that won Friday the 6th African Futsal Cup 2020, held in Laayoune.
In this message, the Sovereign expressed to the members of the national futsal team and, to all the technical and administrative staff at the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, his warm congratulations, praising this remarkable sporting achievement, which confirms the strong continental presence of national football in its various categories.
King Mohammed VI acknowledges the efforts of the parties who have ensured the successful and exemplary organization of this African championship, which has given this great football mass an atmosphere of pride and encouragement to all participating teams from the public and spectators.
While reiterating his pride in this honorable achievement of Moroccan sport, the Sovereign wishes every success on the road to achieving more titles in the various continental and international competitions.
It should be recalled that Morocco, the defending champion, won the CAN Futsal 2020 by largely winning the final (5/0) against Egypt, Friday evening at the Hizam Hall in Laayoune.
The goals of the Atlas Lions were scored by Soufiane Mesrar (2 goals), Abdelaziz Fati, Anas El Ayane and Saad Knya.
Morocco thus retain their continental trophy won in 2016 in South Africa against the same Egyptians (3/2).
The 3rd place of this continental tournament was won by Angola who won Libya (2-0).
Morocco, Egypt and Angola will therefore represent Africa at the Futsal World Cup to be held from 12 September to 4 October 2020 in Lithuania.
