Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – The Moroccan team’s journey as the dark horse at the 2024 World Cup ended in fourth place. The Atlas Lions team again lost in the race for third place.
In competition on Saturday evening (17/12/2022) Indonesian time, the Moroccan team was beaten by Croatia with a score of 1-2.
Goal kicks from Josko Gvardiol, Mislav Orsic and Achraf Dari of Morocco’s reply goal ended the African continent’s side’s journey into the 2022 World Cup arena which was fully backed by the stadium audience.
Even though they finished in fourth place, Morocco themselves became the main attraction of the 2022 World Cup. How could it be otherwise, this team managed to bring home a number of countries with strong footballing traditions.
In the group stage, Morocco proved convincing with an almost goalless goal. The only goal scored by Morocco’s goal was against Canada. Even then by his own team because it’s an own goal.
It was noted that in the initial match, Morocco held Croatia tied with a score of 0-0, then the Atlas Lions conquered Belgium with a score of 2-0, and crushed Canada 4-1 against Canada.
The next footballing country to feel the resilience of the Moroccan team was Spain, who were beaten 3-0 by Spain, followed by Portugal being sent home 1-0 against Portugal.
Morocco’s impressive move was then stopped by France as they hit the 2-0 net without a reply. And again against Croatia, Morocco lost 1-2.
