The anthem of Morocco and the football (Soccer).

On September 29, 2008, Yassine Belassal, young student of the region of Marrakech was sentenced by Moroccan justice to eighteen months in prison for insulting the King. He had changed in his class, the Motto of Morocco.
Football fan, he tagged in her class, "God, Country, Barca" instead of "God, Homeland, King (Allah, Al ouatane, Al Malik)" substitute Barca, the name of his favorite team, the FC Barcelona, on behalf of the King.
The Motto of Morocco, however, related to Football. Indeed, it was in 1969 that King Hassan II decided to attach the motto "God, Homeland, The King" at the end of the national anthem "Manbita alhar al-(Cradle of free men)" composed by the poet Ali Squalli Houssaini to the music of Leo Morgan.
He wanted to allow the national football team (Captain Driss Bamous) qualified for the World Cup in Mexico, something to hum during the presentation of traditional hymn, broadcast on television worldwide.
Ironically, June 3, 1970, when the Moroccan national anthem was heard in a stadium of Mexico, Faras, Houmane and their teammates had not even had time to learn properly Skalli couplets, full of formulas convoluted and phrases learned.
Suddenly, the world has actually admired eleven Moroccans, trying somehow to move their lips, to sing or to outdo their national anthem!
