23-year-old AC Milan midfielder Brahim Abdelkader Díaz, has opted to switch his international allegiance from Spain to Morocco barely weeks the March 2022 international window.
According multiple reports, the midfield metronome who represented Spain at the U17, U19, U23 and won one cap for the La Roja will continue his international football career with the Atlas Lions. We understand Brahim who played for Spain against Lithuania in October 2021 and scored has obtained FIFA clearance to join the North African nation henceforth.
The former Manchester City and Real Madrid man is expected to be named in the Morocco squad to be announced by coach Walid Regragui in the days ahead for upcoming commitments of the 2022 FIFA World Cup semi-finalist.
Born in Malaga, Spain in August 1999, to Moroccan father and a Spanish mother, Brahim has been eligible to represent both nations, though he previously turned down Morocco when he was first approached by Herve Renard in 2018.
The player has however had a rethink after close to a year in the cold and decided to play for Morocco.
The move to join the 1986 African champions at a time Moroccan football is on a rise only strengthens the current team, just about a year to the start of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cote D’Ivoire which could end up being the first big in international football for the man who has seen it all. The early days of Brahim’s career has taken him from the academy of CD Tiro Pichón through Malaga, Manchester City, Real Madrid and now AC Milan on loan from the Los Blancos Merengue.
Brahim will add up the number of Moroccan players in the current squad that were born abroad but opted to pledge their allegiance to fatherland.
