Hakim Ziyech, a forward for Morocco, has been invited to play for the Atlas Lions in friendlies against Chile and Paraguay prior to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

On September 23 at Cornella-El Prat in Spain, the Atlas Lions will take on Chile, and on September 27 at Benito Villamarin in Spain, they will face Paraguay.

Ziyech was added in Walid Regragui’s list of invited players for the friendly, according to Frmf.ma, the new Moroccan coach, who replaced Vahid Halilhodzic, who had left the Chelsea star out.

Ziyech had declared his retirement from playing international football, but he might be about to make a stunning U-turn today.

In 40 games for the Moroccan Atlas Lions, Ziyech has scored 17 goals.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022.

Group F includes Morocco, Belgium, Canada, and Croatia.
