Yassin El Ghannassy has finally come to a decision regarding his international future. The player has been highly solicited by the Belgian FA who would like him to take advantage of his dual citizenship by deciding to represent the country of his birth.
It was previously believed by the majority of the Moroccan media that the La Louviere product was actually leaning towards “Les Diables Rouges” but he has responded favourably to being included in the expanded roster list of the Moroccan Olympic team which will attempt to qualify for 2009 Mediterranean games in Pescara, Italy.
“Yassin has chosen to take part in the Olympic challenge with the [Atlas] Lions,” said his father when contacted by liondelatlas.net.
Other players that have committed their future to the North African country are Ayoub Ahmani Sorensen, Omar El Kaddouri, and Driss El Fettouhi.
