RABAT, July 5 (Reuters) - Morocco coach Humberto Coelho has named an unchanged squad of 20 players for their decisive World Cup qualifier against Senegal next week, officials said on Thursday.

Morocco need just one point from the match on July 14, their final group C qualifier, to reach next year's tournament in Japan and South Korea after a 1-0 win over Egypt last weekend. The squad has 17 foreign-based players for the game in Dakar, including England-based midfielder Mustapha Hadji. The former African Player of the Year scored the winner against Egypt.

Morocco have a six-point lead over Egypt and Senegal, who both have two qualifying matches left.
