Zerouali was capped by Morocco at youth, U20 and U21 levels, and was a member of the team that won the African U20 championship in 1997. He signed for Aberdeen from FUS Rabat in December 1999 and soon became a cult figure with the club's fans. However after appearing for the Dons in both the Scottish Cup and League Cup finals in his first season at Pittodrie he had the misfortune to miss virtually the whole of the 2000-01 campaign after suffering a badly broken ankle. Now fully fit Zerouali is a regular for the full national squad and scored an impressive hat-trick in the 4-1 win at Dundee in September 2001. He is a talented young striker capable of scoring spectacular individual goals.
