Surprise in the momentous meeting. Zakaria Aboukhlal sentenced the 2-0 of Morocco vs. Belgium shortly after the end of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Belgium tried to get a tie more in fits and starts than with clear ideas. Romelu Lukaku debuted in the World Cup, with ten minutes to see if he hunted any inside the area, but he didn’t even touch a chance.
Zakaria Aboukhlal did, already with Belgium upside down, in the 92nd minute. A pass behind Ziyech and the Toulouse striker beat Courtois with a perfect finish. High shot attached to a stick.
A result that leaves Morocco with four points in Group F, Belgium with three, both waiting for what happens in Croatia-Canada to make their guesses in search of the round of 16, but what is certain is that the third classified in Russia 2018 will experience three days of even more criticism until the match that will define her future in Qatar 2022.
belgium in danger
Belgium, second in the FIFA ranking, had won their last seven matches in the group stage of a World Cup. This was Morocco’s first victory in the tournament since 1998 and only the third in its history.
Although they had a chance of becoming the second qualifier for the round of 16 after defending champions France, the defeat means Belgium has to wait for the third game, against Croatia, to know their fate.
