When Morocco plays Portugal in the quarterfinals, they will want to keep up their extraordinary 2022 FIFA World Cup run.
Morocco, the only African team still in Qatar, won its group and then defeated Spain on penalties in the round of 16 to excite their sizable traveling fan base.
In the Round of 16, Portugal defeated Switzerland 6-1 to demonstrate their title credentials, with rookie striker Goncalo Ramos scoring a hat-trick. Portugal also managed to win their group.
If Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the starting lineup as Portugal strives to reach the final four, is still to be determined.
Morocco vs Portugal at the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be the subject of live scoring updates and highlights from FIFAWORLDCUPNEWS.
Morocco vs Portugal: Quarter-final Highlights | Prediction
IS FINISHED! CHANGE THE WORLD, MOROCCO! The initial African nation to achieve so advances to the World Cup semifinals! Where three others eventually split up, Morocco stands tall!
Portugal had multiple chances to defeat Morocco’s resolute defense in the last minutes, but they were unsuccessful. Portugal loses, and Morocco triumphs. As he marches directly down the tunnel, Cristiano Ronaldo can be seen sobbing and unable to contain his emotions.
No country from Africa has ever advanced to the FIFA World Cup semifinals. Only three teams have ever advanced past the quarterfinals, and none of them did so. All three of those teams—Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002, and Ghana in 2010—were quite close to winning.
Gary Lineker’s penalty kick caused England to defeat Cameroon 3-2 in overtime, and it was a heartbreaking loss for Cameroon. Senegal too came incredibly close but was defeated by a golden goal by Turkey in the 94th minute of extra time. Ghana also advanced to overtime and then penalties, but Uruguay won the shootout 4-2 to win the match.
