Morocco upsets Belgium after a 2-0 win
Hakimi had a clear opportunity to open the scoring for his side in the first half. However, his shot was a disappointing one. However, a VAR check had denied Moroccans an opening goal at the stroke of half-time due to offside. Hakim Ziyech had stunned the Red Devils with a stunning strike. A freekick goal that Belgium should have conceded.
The Chelsea star curled one in and Courtois was beaten somehow Belgium and Morocco both played well in the first half, with the former side enjoying more ball possesion and being better on attack.
It was Abdelhamid Sabiri who scored through a stunning free-kick in the 73rd minute to put Moroccans in the driver’s seat. Sabiri had outfoxed Thibaut Courtois with a clever free kick.
Belgium were looking for an equalizer late in the game, but Morocco scored once again to seal the deal. Zakaria Aboukhlal had doubled the lead for Moroccans in the extra time and it was the final nail in Belgium’s coffin.
