Doha, Nov 27 (EFE).- An electric Morocco dealt a blow to Belgium’s World Cup hopes on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Kevin de Bruyne’s team.
After having a goal ruled out for offside in the dying minutes of the first half, the North African team finally managed a breakthrough in the 73rd minute when substitute Abdelhamid Sabiri fired in a shot from a direct free kick.
Romain Saiss lent a helping hand by blocking Thibaut Courtois’s view of the incoming ball.
Fellow sub Zakaria Aboukhlal sealed the deal for an elated Morocco in injury time.
Hakim Ziyech and Sofiane Boufal also stood out for Morocco in the hard-earned win, which shook up Group F ahead of Croatia’s date with Canada.EFE
