VENUE: Jonkoping, Sweden


Two years ago, at Egypt 2021, Morocco returned to the IHF Men’s World Championship after a 14-year wait, ending up in 29th place after dramatically missing the chance to secure a main round berth.

The “Atlas Lions” led by as many as seven goals in the first half of their debut match against Algeria, only to concede a painful loss (23:24) that basically saw their hopes of progressing to the next phase go up in smoke.



Now, at Poland/Sweden 2023, Morocco are back in business and trying to establish themselves as a reliable African team after sealing the bronze medal at the 2022 CAHB African Men’s Handball Championship with a superb performance in the third-place play-off against Tunisia.

A big chunk of that success came from goalkeeper Alae Laaroussi, who was named the All-Star goalkeeper of the 2022 CAHB African Men’s Handball Championship, with superb performances in the competition.



Laaroussi is only the latest addition to a line of excellent goalkeepers, with Yassine Idrissi delivering some outstanding performances at Egypt 2021, where he had 70 saves for a 30% saving efficiency, the second highest number of saves in the tournament.

“Sure, coming and filling Yassine’s shoes is difficult for any goalkeeper because he had a lot of experience and played in France at club level. But I am ready, we are ready and we want to make Morocco proud once again,” said Laaroussi to IHF.info.
