Morocco: Rachid Taoussi Names CAN Squad

Morocco coach Rachid Taoussi on Wednesday (January 10th) named his final 23-man roster for the 2013 African Cup of Nations, goal.com reported. He dropped almost half of the group that participated in the previous CAN edition, including Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh and Celtic defender Badr El Kaddouri.

Taoussi will reportedly rely on Karim El Ahmadi, Younes Belhanda and Youssef El Arabi.

The Atlas Lions open their South African campaign against Angola on January 19th in group A, which also includes the host country and Cape Verde.
