After he was summoned by the Atlas Lions’ new manager Vahid Halilhodzic, the Moroccan international Mohammed Ihattaren has received an offer from the Dutch junior team.

The list, published in the team’s official website, includes the name of the 17-year-old striker born in Utrecht.

A few days ago, Mohammed Ihattaren said that he bears both the Moroccan and Dutch citizenships but he had not yet decided which jersey he wants to wear. «What I want is to play football and make a name for myself, be it with the Dutch or the Moroccan team», he said.

The Dutch junior team is expected to play its first game for the 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Hungary and Slovenia. The match against Cyprus will take place on Tuesday 10 September.
