• World Cup power rankings: how the 32 qualifiers for Russia shape up

Renard received a phone call from Morocco’s King Mohammed VI after that match to congratulate him on the achievement but the Atlas Lions will not just be making up the numbers in Russia, with talented players in every position who could make quite an impact.
