Wolves defender Romain Saiss is once again spending the international break on Morocco duty.
Saiss and his teammates got the final international break of 2021 underway with a trip to face Sudan on Friday.
He played the full 90 minutes at centre-half as the visitors secured a comfortable 3-0 win.
A first half double from Ryan Mmaee and a late strike by Imran Louza sealed all three points.
Saiss played at the heart of Morocco’s defence, which was lined up in a back four.
Of course, he always plays in a five at club level, but it will be good for Bruno Lage to see that he can be flexible too.
Saiss picked up a booking on 58 minutes, which was the only blemish on his evening.
Morocco are absolutely cruising Group I in CAF qualification for next year’s World Cup.
They have won all five games with a record of 17 goals scored and only one conceded.
Saiss will be proud of the part he has played in that defensive record and Morocco will look to continue that on Tuesday when they host Guinea.
