Moroccan Artist Celebrates Coach Regragui With Incredible Wall Portrait



Popular Moroccan artist Ismail Hjila has decided to celebrate coach of the Atlas Lions, Walid Regragui, by carving his image into a wall.

The former Morocco defender became the first coach to lead an African team to the semi-final of the World Cup.

His accomplishment has been widely celebrated across the continent, with Hjila deciding to honour the 47-year-old with a lovely portrait. The artist carved the coach into a wall with a tool.

Morocco will be hoping to become the first nation from Africa to reach the final of the World Cup, when they face France in the semi-final.

Regragui was born in France and started his career in the capital, where he played for Racing Paris. He later joined Toulouse, but left after two seasons to play for Ajaccio.

His only stint out of France was when he played for Racing Santander of Spain. He ended his career in the Moroccan league with Moghreb Tetouan.
