Yassin Bono .. Faithful guardian with a golden leg!
Yassin Bounou, the goalkeeper of the Morocco national football team at the World Cup in Qatar, has attracted the attention of everyone, simple and knowledgeable. He was a star with good looks, perfect acting and rare dedication.
The Moroccan national football team was in Doha, a monolith blazing with enthusiasm and dedication. He achieved great success and became the first Arab team to reach the quarter-finals, beating Spain on penalties, during which Yacine Bono saved two shots, thus also becoming the first Arab goalkeeper to block two penalties in a World Cup. .
The great goalkeeper of the Moroccan national team, Yassine Bounu, shone at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which prompted many experts to confirm that he received a card to move to one of the big clubs, and even many football experts saw that he is at the forefront of the best football goalkeepers in the world at present time.
Born in 1991 in Montreal, Bono could have played in the Canadian national team, but he returned with his family at the age of seven to Casablanca, and from there his football career began.
Yassin Bono is known for his passion for Argentinean football and for dreaming of playing in the front rows, but due to his height he became a goalkeeper.
Journalists noticed another feature of Yassin Bono, referring to the position that he issued in January 2022, when the organizers asked him to answer questions in French before the match with Comoros at the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, but Yassin refused and said that he would speak only Arabic. Although he is fluent in English, Spanish and French, it shows his attachment to his country and its culture.
Bono’s football career has gone through several phases, the most important of which was his €360,000 move to Atlético Madrid in the summer of 2012, but he has found it difficult to adapt to European culture. Yasin puts it this way: “I went through hard times, but it made me stronger. We have to adapt to the European mentality and be on the same wavelength with other players.”
Since the 2020/2021 season, Yassin Bono has become one of the best goalkeepers in the Spanish League, and he is also known for going on the attack and equalizing in the last minute of his Sevillian team’s match against Real Valladolid, and he was also the first goalkeeper, scoring for Sevilla in the league.
Bono said of this exceptional goal: “When I was at Girona, I was close to scoring. I remembered that day and looked at the coach and he told me to come forward. The ball fell in front of me and I did what I did.”
It is likely that Moroccan star Yassine Bounu will continue to shine and interest from fans and managers of major football teams will increase and we will see more of the fine arts of football.
