Former Super Eagles striker Julius Agawa has advised Morocco to be calm in their approach when they face Spain in the last 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Atlas Lions and La Furia Roja will compete for a place in the quarter-finals next Tuesday at the Education City Stadium in Al-Rayyan.
Morocco finished top of Group F with seven points, after two wins and a draw in their first three matches.
On the other hand, Spain managed to reach the second place in Group F after Japan.
The North African is looking to become the fourth African country to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup after Cameroon, Senegal and Ghana.
Agawa, who was part of the Super Eagles squad for the 2022 World Cup hosted by South Korea and Japan, insisted the Atlas Lions should not be afraid of the former world champions.
“The performance of African teams in the World Cup showed that our game on the continent has improved,” Agawa told Brila FM.
For Morocco, I feel they should take each match step by step. It will be a very difficult match for them in the round of 16. They should be calm and not panic.”
