Full time analysis Morocco vs Portugal
It was a sad day for morroco as they crash out of the world cup. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fourth
goal of the 2018 World Cup 2018 but
his team were deeply fortunate to
secure three points against Group B
opponents Morocco in Moscow.
The Real Madrid striker headed
home a fourth-minute corner to give
his side the lead at the Luzhniki
Stadium, but the final score of 1-0
did not reflect the balance of play.
The result means Morocco are the
first team to be eliminated from this
Morocco dominated for the majority
of the game, pushing their
opponents back into their own half
and a performance reminiscent of
their dour, but ultimately
victorious, Euro 2016 campaign.
Nordin Amrabat impressed in attack
for Morocco, and a superb save from
Rui Patricio after a Younes Belhanda
header helped keep Portugal ahead.
Juventus's Medhi Benatia also
spurned a good chance for Herve
Renard's side to pull level but
Portugal did enough to hold on for
the win, albeit without winning any
hearts and minds.
