Celebrations As Africa’s Last Hope Morocco Beats Spain To Qualify For Quarters

Morocco has eliminated Spain today after a penalty shoot-out win over Spain. Morocco scored three as Spain lost three to make it 3:0.

Morocco started well against Spain and managed to hold them to a goalless draw at full-time.

The Moroccans got their tactics right as they constantly sat behind the ball and only waited for a counterattack. There were no such attempts from Morocco since their counterattacks were ineffective as well. Spain on the other hand was forced to change to a more possession kind of game plan forsaking the attack-minded game plan like they always do. The Spanish side is always known for their massive quick attacking prowess.

Seemingly they realized that they weren’t going to penetrate with an attack-minded approach.

The game went for extra time which had flashes of brilliance from Morocco at times. Spain nearly secured a last-minute winner before the ball hit the post. At the end of thirty minutes, it meant the game goes for penalties. Morocco won and is Africa’s last hope going into the quarter.
