Morocco: Nadir Lemyaghri Stays With Atlas Lions

Morocco captain and WAC goalkeeper Nadir Lemyaghri abandoned his plans to retire, Le Matin reported on Wednesday (February 13th).

"I explained to him that this was not the time to retire internationally because he was still in top shape, and also because the team faces three crucial matches and need his services," trainer Said Badou said.

The 36-year-old announced the end of his international career after Morocco exited the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
