The Morocco national football team, qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, is to play against Serbia on March the 23rd in Turin, Italy and will face Uzbekistan in Casablanca on the 27th of the same month, reports the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, Wednesday, on its official website.

The Federation is using the two friendlies to help the Atlas Lions get ready for their opening game with Iran on the 15th of June in St Petersburg, Russia, said the BBC sports.

The two teams are both part of Group B which includes also Spain and Portugal. Morocco played against the Iranian team only twice, in the past, and in the two games managed to win.

For the record, the Moroccan team, currently managed by Herve Renard, has been qualified to the World Cup four times. In 1986 World Cup, the Atlas Lions headed a group that included Portugal.
