Despite being born in Spain, Real Madrid’s Brahim Diaz has decided to represent the highest-ranked African team, Morocco, after waiting impatiently for La Roja’s call.

Diaz’s Disappointment with Spain

Born to Spanish parents in Malaga, Brahim Diaz had always aspired to play for Spain’s national team. However, growing disillusioned by the lack of a call-up from multiple Spanish national team managers, Diaz opted to represent Morocco instead

Despite his successes at the youth level for Spain and his performances for AC Milan and now Real Madrid, the 24-year-old has yet to be called up, and the disappointment has led to his decision to switch allegiances.

Morocco’s Persuasion and Gain

The efforts of the Moroccan Football Federation, particularly President Fouzi Lekjaa, and the country’s minister delegate for the budget played a crucial role in convincing Brahim Diaz to choose Morocco.

Despite his roots in Spain, Diaz has familial ties to Morocco through his paternal grandfather, enabling him to qualify to represent the African nation. Morocco stands to benefit from Diaz’s talent and skill, adding another quality player to their roster of attacking prowess.

With the decision made, Brahim Diaz now prepares to make his international debut for Morocco. His potential inclusion in the Atlas Lions’ squad for the upcoming match against Angola signals a new chapter in his career.
