Barcelona’s latest talent emerges unscathed from Moroccan earthquake

    The Brazilian Football Confederation has announced the evacuation of some U-23 players from the hotel where they were staying in the Moroccan city of Fez over fears they could be affected by the earthquake that hit Morocco on Friday night.

    The earthquake coincided with the presence of the Brazilian Olympic team, led by new Barcelona star Vitor Roque, in Morocco, where it was due to play its second friendly match in Morocco on Monday against the Moroccan Olympic team during the current international break.

    Vitor Roque, who recently signed from Atlético Paranaense to Barcelona, ​​was not injured but was among the players who were evacuated from the hotel at the time of the earthquake to take shelter near the pool.

    A statement from the Brazilian Confederation said: “The Brazilian Confederation sympathizes with the Moroccan people in the tragedy caused by the earthquake on Friday evening.”

    He added: “The Olympic team delegation, which is preparing to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, is safe in Fez, a city that was not affected by the earthquake.”

    He continued: “The players and members of the technical staff felt the earthquake on Friday evening. “For safety reasons, everyone stayed near the hotel pool for about an hour before returning to their rooms.”

    It is worth noting that the first meeting between Morocco and Brazil last Thursday ended in a victory for Morocco with a score of 1:0.
