Moroccan footballer Yassine Bounou lifts spirits of child amputee in Gaza

“My dream just came true.” 11-year-old Asif Abu Mahadi lost his leg in an Israeli air strike in Gaza. It’s his dream to get back on the football pitch and play just like his idol – Morocco’s goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, who called Asif to wish him well. Bounou was part of the Moroccan men’s football team that made it to the semi-finals of FIFA’s Qatar World Cup 2022.
