The hero of Morocco: Bono shone by saving two penalties against Spain

Yassine Bounou, or better known as Bono, became the figure in Morocco’s qualification to the quarterfinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The goalkeeper excelled in the penalty shootout against Spain and saved two shots that helped his team to get among the eight best in the tournament.

Abdelhamid Sabiri hit his shot at the start of the ‘Russian roulette’ and thus put his team ahead. Later, Pablo Sarabia sent his ball to the crossbar to the lament of the ‘Red’ fans. It was Hakim Ziyech’s turn who overcame Unai Simón’s resistance to increase the advantage and then the Moroccan goalkeeper’s show would come.

Carlos Soler stood in front of the ball, but Bono guessed the intention, but Badr Banoun missed his shot, which excited the Spaniards, however, that joy did not last long. Subsequently, Carlos Busquets made a mistake after a good intervention by the ‘Mechanical Camel’ goalkeeper.

So, the classification was at the feet of Achraf Hakimi. The footballer, who plays for PSG, chipped the ball and thus, Morocco marks history by getting their pass to the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup.

On the other hand, it is important to mention that the African team will play this Saturday, December 10, for the quarterfinals at the Al Thumama Stadium. The squad led by Walid Regragui must wait for the winner of the key between Portugal and Switzerland.
