Ziyech headlines the Moroccan squad after his scintillating season for Dutch giants, where registered 21 goals and 24 assists across all competitions.

Coach Herve Renard went with squad largely-based with European players, as on-loan Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi made the cut after recovering from injury.

The Atlas Lions open their campaign with a clash against Namibia, before they face South Africa and end off against Ivory Coast.
