(Reuters) - Morocco’s squad for next month’s friendly with fellow World Cup-bound side the United States, plus two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, is eagerly awaited to see if forward Hakim Ziyech makes a comeback and coach Vahid Halilhodzic keep his job.

Chelsea's Ziyech, who is Morocco's biggest star, fell out with the coach last year and did not play for the country in any World Cup qualifiers or at January’s Cup of Nations finals.
