“It will be a very test match for us.
We are up against one of the best football nations in the world.
I think he is one of the favorites to reach the final,” Regragui said on Monday.
“That being said, we also have things up our sleeves.
We’ve had one more rest day than them and we’re going to try to get a surprise out of the bag.
“If we can send Spain packing, I think it will be a wonderful surprise not only for us but also for our country.
Spain denied Morocco a famous 2018 World Cup victory with a last-gasp 2-2 draw, the only point the Moroccans managed in Russia.
“We are not looking for revenge at all.
We are not looking at what happened in the past,” said Regragui, who was appointed in August.
“We have a new generation and, for me, the mentality has to change with the Moroccan team.
All the negatives, that’s the old Morocco, we’ve changed it.
Our country has changed.
Morocco, the only Arab nation and the last remaining African team in Qatar, will have the vocal support of thousands of fans for Tuesday’s game at Education City Stadium.
“We will come out swinging.
We want to raise the Moroccan flag high.
We are playing above all for ourselves and our country”, said Regragui.
“All Arabs and Africans, we want to make you happy.
We want your prayers and we want your support so that he can give us that extra ingredient to win.
Before it was only the Moroccans who supported us”.
Morocco’s only other round of 16 appearance was in 1986, when they lost 1-0 to eventual runners-up West Germany.
“I don’t think we should come out with any kind of complex,” Regragui said.
“Yes, we are the underdogs, but we know what Spain is made of and the recipe is easy.
We shouldn’t worry, we shouldn’t regret it and give our best.
