Morocco confirm final squad

Malaga forward Youssef En Nesyri has been drafted into Morocco's final 23-man World Cup squad at the expense of defender Badr Benoun.

Wolves defender Romain Saiss is in a squad that contains only two players from the main Moroccan domestic league.

Southampton midfielder Sofiane Boufal had already been left out having not played since 31 March following a dispute with manager Mark Hughes.

Morocco are in Group B in Russia alongside Iran, Portugal and Spain.

Raja Casablanca defender Benoun was Morocco captain for the African Nations Championship victory in February.
