This Wednesday the German club Eintracht Frankfurt had announced via a tweet the last minute selection of its attacking midfielder Aymen Barkok. And according to some media the latter would have been called by Vahid Halilohdzic to compensate for the supposed injury of Azzedine Ounahi.
However, this information would be a hoax. Morocco did not call the player as the German club had mistakenly announced. Indeed, Eintracht Frankfurt had the wrong press release. Wanting to announce the selection of Jens Petter Hauge with Norway, Aymen Barkok was mentioned by mistake.
🌍ℹ️ @jenspetter99 ist für die Spiele der norwegischen Nationalmannschaft gegen die Slowakei und Armenien nachnominiert worden. Gute Reise und viel Erfolg 💪
Aymen Barkok ist derweil nicht zur Nationalmannschaft gereist. #EMS https://t.co/qjP21e5pqV

🚨🇲🇦 Contrary to what was announced, Aymen Barkok was not called up by Vahid Halilhodzic for the play-offs against the DRC. The player’s entourage evokes a communication error from Frankfurt.
For his part, Azzedine Ounahi trained normally.
