Saiss helps Morocco to 4-1 away win on international duty

Romain Saiss was among the Wolves players in senior international action on Tuesday.

Saiss helped Morocco to a away 4-1 win over Guinea in World Cup qualification.

The win puts Saiss’ side into the next round of African qualification with 12 points.

Saiss played at centre half in a 4-4-2 system which differs from the formation Bruno Lage uses at Molineux.

He played the full 90 minutes as Morocco ran out comfortable winners.

Saiss has been a regular for Wolves this season on the left of Lage’s back three.

Mamadou Kane’s 31st minute goal did end Morocco’s run of clean sheets which had caught the eye during the international break.

The last time Saiss and Morocco tried to play in Guinea, the game was abandoned and they were moved out of the country amid fears for their safety.

Last night was a more serene experience and Saiss should return to Wolves full of confidence.
