Due to his versatility and experience, Younes Belhanda is one of the first names on the Morocco team sheet. For eight years, the Avignon native has performed in every possible midfield position, from creative fulcrum to ball winner to link man – he has even put in a solid shift out on the wing.

A pacy, unselfish player, Belhanda initially represented France’s U-20 side, but switched his allegiance to Morocco in 2010, subsequently taking part in the 2012 CAF Africa Cup of Nations, but missing out on the 2017 edition through injury. The Galatasaray star has enjoyed considerable success at club level, earning league winners’ medals with Montpellier in 2012 and with Dynamo Kiev in 2014 and 2015.
