Michel has handed a surprise recall to goalkeeper Khalid Fouhami
Fouhami has not played for the Atlas Lions for more than two years.
But he was named by coach Henri Michel in a party of 23 for the tournament which kicks off in Ghana on 20 January.
It was Fouhami's goalkeeping error which saw Morocco beaten 2-1 by hosts Tunisia in the 2004 Nations Cup final.
However, Morocco will be without
injured midfielder Mbark Boussoufa when they go in search of what would only be their second Nations Cup title.
Spain-based Mohamed Yaacoubi and former Ajax striker Nourdin Boukhari have been dropped.
Morocco play Namibia in their Group A opener in Accra on 21 January and also share the group with Guinea and hosts Ghana.
