The Morocco coach is talking all about representing Africa, and I don’t even see any reference to the Arab world. Here —> https://www.espn.com/soccer/morocco-mar ... cky-balboa

Morocco’s World Cup win lifts a legion of Arab fans
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/20 ... olidarity/
You could feel the whole stadium was chanting for Morocco — Syrians and Egyptians and Palestinians, the entire Arab world,” he said. “It feels really — natural.”
For some, the feelings evoked an earlier era of Pan-Arab nationalism, even if the identities of the teams participating were more complicated, with fans also claiming ties to the Persian Gulf or Africa, for example. Encounters between Arab citizens who traveled from their countries and mingled with fellow citizens living abroad have nurtured the sense of community.
Fans said that in recent weeks, conversations across the region have focused on the excitement of the latest match by an Arab team, or giddy anticipation of the next, even by people who cared little about soccer. Through it all, a narrative of the World Cup emerged that was wholly different from the one heard in Europe and elsewhere, where the focus has been on the abuses suffered by migrant workers who prepared the tournament’s infrastructure, and the general lack of suitability of Qatar as a host.
Amine Eddaifi, 32, a Moroccan consultant who lives in the United Arab Emirates and had traveled back and forth to Qatar for the matches.

We represent the Arab world, the last hope,” he said Tuesday, before the match against Spain. “It’s a great feeling. It’s also some pressure,” he said.

Didnt Samuel Eto one time score for Barca at Stamford bridge and was running stabbing his biceps rapidly in celebration; he was later asked what that means and he went on to say something to the effect that it means his talents to score were from the blood of his ancestors; Was that a race based statement/behavior. Point its neither here nor there. It only matters when you have nothing more important to say.
Morocco as a nation has done more for African football than any other African nation in recent years. time after time they picked up and accepted the responsibilities of hosting tournaments after tournaments when designated host counties dropped the ball. Morocco was and is always ready to pick up the tabs. They now have been rewarded handsomely for all the good things they have been doing for African football. Anyone saying anything otherwise than supporting morocco and sharing in their accomplishment has no brains.

They are part of CAF and their success is also one of African football.

And let’s not forget that Africa is in fact considered the most diverse continent. From the Kalahari bushmen who have Asian features to Tuaregs in the Sahara, we span every look and shade. There is no one African look

Success has many fathers, that's the reason we see all these Arab references, if war broke out in Morocco today, don't expect the Saudis, Qataris, Emiratis etc. to move an inch. It would be Africa picking up the pieces.

Moroccans have multiple identities Arab, Amazigh, and of course African. Nothing wrong with that. Very few Moroccans I know deny that they are African. They are receiving a lot of support from the locals in Qatar because they identify as Arab as well, but I dont see anything wrong with that.

It would be a great story if a manager who was managing in the CAF Champions League a few months ago wins the World Cup. A major credit to African football without a doubt.

Exactly how I see it. I don't know why it has to be either or. Atlas has already said they are African Berbers and Arabs. That said, support who you like, afterall some people refused to support Ghana. It isn't that deep.
