“I can’t help but congratulate Morocco on a great course (at the World Cup). It’s great to see Africa shine,” the three-time world champion wrote on his Instagram account.

The Brazilian football legend Edson Arantes do Nascimento “Pele”, who has been hospitalized since the end of November, congratulated the “incredible” Moroccan performance at the World Cup, and Qatar’s Atlas Lions believes that “bringing Africa to light”.

The former Santos and Cosmos attacker has been hospitalized to evaluate changes in chemotherapy he has undergone since having his colon tumour removed in September 2021, according to his doctors.

A few days later they reported that he also had a respiratory infection. The infection came after the former footballer contracted Covid-19 about a month ago, according to his daughters, who denied reports that Pele had stopped responding to chemotherapy.

Also, Olay (King) congratulated Argentina for an “exciting” match against France on Sunday, praising the performances of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
