‘Why not an African World Cup champion?’ Regragui aims to blaze trail with Morocco

Morocco are in pole position to make it into the World Cup 2022 last-16 as they take on Canada in a decisive game in Group F this afternoon.

The Atlas Lions claimed a first World Cup victory since 1998 when they defeated Belgium last time out and another win today would secure them a spot in the knockout rounds.

Walid Regragui’s team haven’t made it out of the group stages since 1986 and it will be a huge success if they can get over the line today.

Canada are already out, exiting after two defeats in two despite plenty of exciting moments, but they won’t make things easy for Morocco.

Canada 1-2 Morocco

82 mins: Morocco counter quickly but sub Abderrazak Hamdallah takes too long to make a decision! Dispossessed by Hutchinson when he had options either side of him!

Will Morocco live to regret that?!

Canada 1-2 Morocco

72 mins: Oh so close for Canada!

Atiba Hutchinson wins the header from the corner and it smashes the bottom of the crossbar – hits the line – and then Jamieson can’t get his head over the ball following up!

Inches away for the Canadians! Morocco’s lead hanging by a thread…

Canada 1-2 Morocco

70 mins: Ziyech accelerating – surging! – towards the Canada penalty area and he looks like he’s been tripped, but no free-kick says the referee.

58 mins: Hoilett does well down the right and crosses in for Davies rushing into the box – but his stabbed volley is well wide!

Still, much better from Canada, who are on top at the moment!
