MONACO (AP) — Morocco’s Amine Harit appears doubtful for the World Cup after the Marseille midfielder came off on a stretcher during his side’s 3-2 win at Monaco in the French league on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Harit, who has made 16 international appearances for his country, fell down clutching his left knee following a challenge with Monaco defender Axel Disasi early in the second half at Stade Louis II.
Harit was named in Morocco’s World Cup squad on Thursday.
Morocco has a tough draw in Group F, opening against 2018 World Cup runner-up Croatia on Nov. 23 before facing 2018 semifinalist Belgium and then Canada on Dec. 1.
The national team is playing in its sixth World Cup after making its first appearance in 1970.
