Qatar 2022: FIFA traces Morocco's journey to the world

Morocco qualified for the final four of the Qatar 2022 World Cup on Saturday, beating Portugal (1-0). On its Twitter account, FIFA traced the course of the Atlas lions during this Cup.

“Portuguese (1-0), Morocco, with courage and heart, became the first African team to qualify for the last four of a World Cup,” wrote FIFA.

“Incredible Morocco”, the Atlas Lions “gave everything this Saturday and the reward is there”: they are the first African nation to qualify for the semi-finals of a World Cup, after a “victory at the end effort” (1-0) against Portugal, underlines FIFA on its website.

The Atlas Lions “fought every inch of the field” to maintain their “precious advantage” following En-Nesyri’s goal, she noted, adding that the result is “simply historic”.

After 3 first unsuccessful attempts by Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010, “Africa has finally conquered its demons” thanks to the exploit of Morocco, notes FIFA, highlighting the solidity of the defense Moroccan who has not conceded any goal from an opposing player in this tournament, except that of Nayef Aguerd, scored against his camp in the group stage against Canada (2-1).
