Morocco will play their first friendly international after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in November when they meet Tunisia.

The Atlas Lions will face their North African neighbours as they will meet the Carthage Eagles on November 20 in Tunis.

According to Morocco World News, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has confirmed the news on Sunday.

“This meeting will serve as preparation for the men of Hervé Renard,” the website reports.

Meanwhile, the north Africans will first look to do well in their upcoming 2019 CAF African Cup of Nations Qualifiers in September.

Their first game will be against Malawi on September 7 and will therefore meet Comoros on October 10 and 13.

In their third match, they are up against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on November 16 and a second game against Malawi on 22 March 2019.

Despite their failure to reach the knockout stages in Russia, Morocco received international applause at the back of losses to Iran and Portugal.
