Morocco's football federation has lost its case against FIFA to recruit Spain forward Munir El Haddadi before the World Cup.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport dismissed Morocco's appeal against a FIFA ruling that blocked the Barcelona player from transferring allegiance. The verdict was given after a hearing on Monday.
