Between France and Morocco, Imran Louza would have made his choice. After much thought, the Watford player decided to wear the colors of the Atlas Lions.
Good news for Vahid Halihodzic. According to RMC Sport, the 22-year-old Imran Louza, who has kept the suspense so far, has agreed to represent Morocco on a large scale.
Born to a Moroccan father and a French mother, Louza represented both countries at U20 level, while boasting six appearances for the France U21 team.
It is therefore a profile that risks doing good for the national team, which seeks to strengthen itself for the next deadlines. Louza is capable of playing wide but mostly occupies a central position in midfield, either in a defensive role or further forward.
Louza will therefore be part of the team for the Qatar 2022 qualifiers. The Moroccan selection will play in Group I alongside the teams from Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan. Only the first in the group will mark his path for the play-off, the winner of which will win one of the five World Cup tickets awarded to the African continent.
Trained in Nantes, Louza joined Watford in June for a sum of 10 million dirhams. The Franco-Moroccan has signed a five-year contract that will keep him at Vicarage Road until 2026.
In the campaign which has just ended, the 22-year-old has played a crucial role which has prevented his former club, FC Nantes from being demoted to the second level in France. With the Canaries, he played 66 matches for 12 goals scored.
