Morocco’s goals were scored by Ismail Amzal, Sufyan Shaarawy, Youssef Jawad, Khaled Bou Zaid, Sufyan Briet, Reda Al-Khayari and an own goal by Suleiman Al-Omran. Abdul Rahman Al-Taweel notched up the consolation for the Kuwaitis.

The victory gave Morocco their third consecutive Arab Futsal Cup title, having won the 2021 and 2022 tournaments. They have now surpassed the two titles won by Egypt, who won the first and second editions, and Libya, victorious in the third and fourth.

Shortly after the end of the game, King Mohammed VI sent a message of congratulations to the members of the national futsal team for winning, for the third time in a row, the Arab Futsal Cup.

This victory once again confirms the achievements of Moroccan soccer, with its different types and categories, at various regional, continental, and international sporting events, the King emphasized in his message.

The King who expressed his pride for this latest achievement, which is the outcome of the efforts made by the members of the team, as well as all the technical and administrative staff of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), noted that these efforts are motivated by patriotism and a strong determination to continue honoring the national game and raising the Moroccan flag high in international competitions.

The Sovereign wished the members of the national team every success on the road to winning more titles while assuring them of his high solicitude and benevolence.

The Moroccan team had dominated, from start to finish, the matches in Pool B, getting the better of the Comoros Islands (5-0), Lebanon (6-0), and Kuwait (4-2).

Morocco then ousted Saudi Arabia (5-2) in the quarter-finals, before defeating Libya (5-1) in the semi-finals.

The 7th edition of the Arab Futsal Cup brought together teams from Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Algeria, Palestine, Mauritania, Comoros, and Tajikistan.

Morocco are a force to be reckoned with. It will be interesting to see if the nation will host the next FIFA Futsal World Cup in 2024. And if they are able to produce the performances needed in front of their home fans to progress past the quarter-finals. In 2021, Morocco reached the quarter-finals for the first time, losing to Brazil in a close match, 0-1.
