Back-to-back Morocco clean sheets for Wolves' Romain Saiss

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Romain Saiss has made it back-to-back clean sheets for his Morocco side following their latest World Cup qualifying win.

Morocco swept aside Guinea-Bissau 3-0 to make it three wins out of three and took charge of their qualifying group.

Playing again on the left of a two-man centre-back partnership in a 4-4-2 formation, Saiss had Watford left-back Adam Masina to the left of him.

In another commanding and dominant performance, it meant Saiss’ Morocco are yet to concede a goal during the qualifying campaign.

Morocco now head to Guinea on Tuesday where they could face one of Wolves’ rumoured summer transfer targets Amadou Diawara, who could be available in January.

Saiss’ win yesterday came the day after Willy Boly helped the Ivory Coast keep a clean sheet in their 3-0 win over Malawi in World Cup qualification.

With Boly back fit and knocking on the starting eleven door at Wolves, Saiss will know that he will have to stay on the top his game just like Max Kilman and Conor Coady to keep Boly out of the side.

Saiss, 31, has shown during the international break that he can adapt to playing in a back three under Lage at Molineux to playing in a back four for his country.
