Youssef Aït Bennasser opts for Morocco

Today is shaping into a rather good day for Morocco national team boss Hervé Renard.

Having earlier made the announcement that Lille attacking midfielder Sofiane Boufal has opted to play for his international outfit, the Moroccan FA have been boosted by the news that highly-rated 19 year old midfielder Youssef Aït Bennasser will also be joining them after receiving a call up.

The Franco-Morrocan had previously been linked with a move to Arsenal in January and his club Nancy confirmed his decision to accept the Moroccan call-up today.
