Africa’s only representative in the FIFA WORLD CUP quarterfinals has taken the lead ahead of Portugal in the first half of the 90 minutes to be played.
En-Nesyri beats Costa to the ball and heads it into the net.
Referee Facundo Tello draws the first half to a close and is immediately surrounded by irate Portuguese players who feel they should have had a penalty for a foul on Fernandes not long after En-Nesyri had opened the scoring for Morocco. I’ll need to see that one again, if I’m honest because there was so much going on. However, on ITV co-comms, Ally McCoist says no spot-kick should have been forthcoming and that’s almost certainly good enough for me. Morocco lead at the break and we have a terrific second half in store.
Morocco is set to be the first African country to enter the semi finals of the FIFA WORLD CUP if they beat Portugal.
