World Cup

Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri’s goals in the first half propelled Morocco to a 2-1 victory over Canada, giving them first place in Group F and, for the first time in 36 years, a spot in the World Cup’s round of 16.

Despite being placed in a challenging group with teams like Croatia and Belgium, who placed second and third in 2018 respectively, Morocco managed to steal four points from the European teams before holding on to defeat Canada in their final group match.

Following the conclusion of Group E on Thursday evening, Morocco will now play the group’s runners-up, which could be Spain, Japan, Costa Rica, or Germany.

Croatia finished as runners-up after drawing 0-0 with Roberto Martinez’s team, who were eliminated at the group stage. Had Croatia defeated Belgium, who played at the same time as Morocco played Canada, the North Africans might have dropped to second.

Nayef Aguerd accidentally turned Sam Adekugbe’s cross into his own net just before halftime, giving Canada—who was competing in their first World Cup since 1986—a goal. However, Canada ultimately finished last in the standings without a point.
