A Moroccan newspaper has published what it claims are details of a leaked three-page confidential Fifa document on the 2010 World Cup bids.
The Moroccan bid is headed by Saad Kettani
Just four days before Fifa chooses the 2010 host in Zurich, Al Mountakab says the confidential report prepared for Fifa's 24-member executive committee gives Morocco the edge over the other four bidders.
Fifa's official report published on the world body's website last week described South Africa's bid as "excellent" with those of Egypt and Morocco termed "very good".
But Al Mountakab claim that the report they published is different from last week's official 94-page document "and includes points that were omitted".
The newspaper says Fifa inspectors found that there was nothing much separating the leading bidders - Egypt, Morocco and South Africa on transport, communication facilities and hotels.
But when it came to financial, health and security matters, the Moroccan bid was rated above Egyptian and South Africa.
"South Africa and Egypt submitted insufficient and unclear financial guarantees," the paper quotes the leaked document.
It went on to say that South Africa's report on fund the building of stadiums "has certain inadequacies while Morocco has provided solid financial details.
"Morocco's financial guarantees exclude revenue from advertising," the three-page document reportedly states.
The official report published by Fifa criticised Morocco's infrastructure and but praised the country's financial standing and security.
Al Mantakoub's story appears to have given Moroccans new hope that their country will win the right to host the World Cup in 2010.
