Magical Welcome For Morocco’s Heroes
Morocco’s football team, which became the first Arab and African team to enter a FIFA World Cup semi-final, received a glorious homecoming in the capital Rabat.
The Atlas Lions, who finished fourth in the World Cup in Qatar, were cheered by massive crowds as they rode on an open-top bus.
The streets of Rabat were lined with jubilant fans dancing to the beat of drums, lighting flares and waving flags as the bus went by.
Moroccon star Achraf Hakimi also posted pictures from the parade and tweeted: ‘Thank you for your unconditional support. Today was a very special day. Dima Maghrib’.
