Thanks for making Africa proud, Buhari tells Morocco


President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a congratulatory message to Moroccan World Cup team, the Atlas Lions, and the ruler of the country, King Mohammed the VI on making history by  becoming the fourth team from an African country to ever qualify for the World Cup quarterfinals, and the first to win a place in a semi-final at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

Buhari said Morocco had made the entire continent proud with their grit and dexterity, giving hope that an African team can indeed win, and should win the ongoing global championship in Qatar.

President Buhari commends the team for their skill and teamwork, noting at the same time that that could not have been achieved without the exemplary role of the Moroccan authorities in putting together a formidable team.
