Morocco advances to semi-finals with historic win

Morocco is a North African country. To be able to play on the main stage of the World Cup is a big achievement for them.

But the Arab-African country has already made history in Qatar. They reached the quarterfinals one by one, shocking the world.

They cannot stop here. Instead, they defeated history and made new history. It also gave birth to African fairy tales. Not only that, the Moroccans are also leading the football revolution in Arab countries.

Morocco beat Portugal 1-0 in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup at the Arsoumama Stadium last night. Thereby, a permanent place is left in history.

Because the Moroccans are the first African country to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.

African teams have historically reached the last eight as far as we know. Cameroon in the 1990 World Cup, Senegal in the 2022 World Cup and Ghana in the 2010 World Cup were all eliminated in the quarterfinals. But Morocco surpassed them all.

This victory is the belief of all football fans, and Morocco’s achievements will be passed down in African football through the ages. They start in the group stage. First they stopped 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia. The game ended in a goalless draw.

The FIFA-ranked side then beat Belgium 2-0. In the last game, they defeated Canada 2-1, became the champions of the group stage and reached the round of 16. As a result, the Belgian withdrew from the group stage.

2010 World Cup champions Spain were knocked out by Morocco in the round of 16. The Spaniard was once unable to find the back of the net in the decider. Goalkeeper Yasimbuno became a huge wall in front of the Spaniard.

They lost to the likes of Portugal in the last eight. Despite having the ball for more than three-quarters of the time, the Portuguese was unable to open Morocco’s goal. As a result, Ronaldo left the World Cup crying. Hakim Ziachra, on the other hand, left the field with the birth of a fairy tale.

Morocco is not only an African country, but also the first Arab country to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. Morocco reached the round of 16 in 1986, Saudi Arabia in 1994 and Algeria in 2014. These are by far the best achievements of the Arabs.

Among the predominantly Muslim countries, Turkey has had the greatest success. They reached the semi-finals of the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

After losing 1-0 to Brazil in the semi-finals, the Turkish team beat South Korea in the qualifying round to finish third. Morocco touched their feat this time around.


Qatar made history by becoming the first Arab country to host the World Cup. But they haven’t had any success in this area.

Even if the organizers didn’t get it, Saudi Arabia led the revolution this time around. In the first game of the group stage, they defeated the tournament favorites Argentina.

And in this way, Argentina was lost, and Saudi Arabia also made trouble. In addition, another African Arab country, Tunisia, scored a goalless draw with Denmark.

However, these groups did not have any further success. But Morocco survived at Birdarp. Bangladesh has developed countless fans as Bangladeshis see Morocco in a new way.
