4 African countries at the world cup competitions have had a rare urge to pull in for a win but finally Morocco shines.
A late goal from Zakaria Aboukhlal and another one from Abdelhamid Sabiri, in the 92nd and 73rd minutes of the second half put the Atlas Lions on the top as they won their game against The Red Devils of Belgium in the round two of the Group F game.
Just like Ziyech earlier, Sabiri’s free-kick goes through the crowd and Saiss puts off Courtois as it goes in – only this time he’s onside!
In the 75th minutes, Belgium responded with Trossard and De Ketelaere on for Thorgan Hazard and the woeful Batshuayi was unable to deliver for the team.
Morocco have managed a few runs at the other end as a natural consequence of the higher lines Martinez is employing.
Soon after those substitutions are made, a corner is won on the left side and the change has done the trick.
Sabiri, who is tasked with taking it, curled in a lovely attempt at the far post which beats Courtois all ends up to give a goal.
