Only times prior to the clash, Hakimi was requested about Morocco’s chances of progression and why he represented them more than Spain, revealing he did not come to feel “at house” in just the Spain squad.
“Indeed, there were being times in the youth staff. There were being contacts, I went to the Spanish Nationwide Crew also to attempt, with [Under-21 coach Luis] De la Fuente.
“I was in Las Rozas for a pair of days and I saw that it was not the right location for me, I did not come to feel at house.
“It was not for anything at all in individual, but for what I felt, for the reason that it was not what I had sucked and lived at house, which is the Arab society, becoming Moroccan. I desired to be below.”
Morocco will now face the winner of the last-16 tie between Portugal and Switzerland, which can take position on Tuesday night.
