Injured Moroccan midfielder joins squad for World Cup encouragement

Moroccan midfielder Amine Harit, originally chosen to play in the World Cup but injured a week before the start of the tournament, arrived in Qatar on Monday to be with the team for their semi-final against France on Wednesday.

Harit, 25, was welcomed by teammates, several of whom posted photos with him on social media. He has moved in with the team at their base in Doha and continued his treatment for a knee injury with the Moroccan medical staff.

Moroccan captain Romain Saiss posted a photo to Instagram showing him and Harit, writing: “Among us at last… May God heal you… This adventure is yours too.”

Harit suffered a severe cruciate ligament sprain in his left knee while playing for Olympique de Marseille against Monaco in Ligue 1 on 13 November, days before he was due to leave for the World Cup.
