The selection freeze is beginning to wreak havoc on some hierarchical rosters, such as the merengue team, where up to 12 internationals receive calls from their countries.
There is no football in LaLiga this weekend but there is Euro 2024 qualifiers where Brahim Díaz was waiting for the call Spain. Despite a process with the U17, U19 and U21 divisions, friendlies with the senior team and a great performance at AC Milan a few months ago, Ludwig from the source left it out.
Although Brahim Díaz was born in Malaga, his parents’ nationality also allows him to play in the Moroccan national team. In fact, the Andalusian midfielder received calls from the FMF (Football Federation of Morocco) a few weeks ago, but he turned them down, hoping to wait for the La Rioja coach. The list came out and the flyer found it wasn’t there. However, Walid Regragui’s offer is valid.
Eventually, Brahim Díaz will answer Morocco’s call
With De la Fuente banning him from the Euro 2024 qualifiers (which, by the way, will be played in Germany), the Malaga man has decided to represent Morocco. The Franco-Moroccan manager has yet to release an official schedule for the first games to be played in November related to Africa’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers. Even so, there’s a strong possibility that the former Manchester City will be on the call.
The other competition that Brahim Díaz is certain to attend is the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, to be played in Ivory Coast between January 13 and February 11, 2024. This tournament will see the player out for a long time and that’s what worries the Real Madrid coach.
These are the games that Brahim Díaz will miss after being called up to the Moroccan national team
Although Ancelotti’s attacking midfielder is not used often, he is a player who must be available on the bench. In the 340 minutes played so far in LaLiga EA Sports, the Andalusian has only featured in 14 minutes. A clear sign that the Transalpine coach does not see him as a first option, although given Bellingham and his level it is difficult to place the Englishman.
The fact is that Brahim Díaz will agree with the call of the African team, which means he will miss several games with Real Madrid. He will probably be absent from the Spanish Supercup, which will again be held in Saudi Arabia. As for LaLiga, he won’t be part of the signings against Getafe CF, Almería and UD Las Palmas. But if Morocco keeps progressing at this stage, they will lose the Madrid derby and then the game against Girona FC.
