FIFA bans Munir from playing for Morocco

The regulations changed, but the Sevilla player continues to fail to comply with a requirement: he defended the U-21 jersey with 21 years of age. You can claim.


FIFA has banned Munir from playing for Morocco, even though the rules were changed last month. The world soccer body was flexible in allowing footballers to change national teams once they make their senior debut. Everything seemed to indicate, therefore, that the Sevilla player could represent another country. However, one of the requirements imposed by FIFA to be able to wear the shirt of another national team is not fulfilled by the attacker, according to AP.

The new conditions mark the following: a footballer cannot have played more than three times with the Absolute, none of those three games can be in an important tournament, at least three years have passed since he played with his national team and he has not been able to represent his country once he turned 21 years old. It is precisely the latter that poses a problem for Munir. In September, October and November 2016, he played with the Under-21s in qualifying for the Eurocup, with 21 already completed. His birthday (September 1, 1995) has taken a toll on the evaluation of the formal petition.

In other words, Munir was previously prohibited from representing Morocco because he had already played with Spain. Now, with the more flexible rules, he will not be able to do it for playing matches with the Under-21s being over 21 years old. In any case, the world football organization allows the player to challenge the decision in the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
