Hatim Ammor releases new video to cheer on Atlas Lions in 2018 World Cup 

Moroccan artists have been releasing encouraging songs, ever since Moroccan football team -Atlas Lions- secured a place at 2018 World Cup in Russia. And the most recent one is Hatim Ammor’s « Viva Morocco ».

Pop singer Hatim Ammor has put his already successful single « Yama », at the service of the Atlas Lions. The melody remained the same, but the lyrics have changed to boost the team’s players in their next participation in the 2018 World Cup starting June 14th.

The song « Viva Morocco » was released a few weeks ago and was even covered by some players of the national team, but it was not until April 25 that the singer posted the official music video on his YouTube channel.

The clip shows Hatim Ammor proudly wearing the Moroccan colors with children holding a ball, hoisting Moroccan flags on their shoulders, and heading to a large stadium.

« Play with the soul, with the heart. The lion never loses the war. The story will be rewritten, » Ammor sings.

The coach of the national team Hervé Renard and many of his players like Mehdi Benatia, Noredin Amrabat, or Nabil Dirar also made an appearance along with other celebrities like the comedian Gad Elmaleh or the model Leila Hadioui.
