Morocco coach Walid Regragui said he wants his team to break “the curse of the African Cup” as he named his 27-man squad for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday.

It has been 47 years since Morocco last won the continental competition, but after reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar last year, they are now one of the favourites to win the title in Ivory Coast.

Since winning the cup in 1976, Morocco have only reached the final once, in 2004 when they lost to hosts Tunisia.
