Morocco have stunned Portugal at the quarterfinals and become the first African team to reach the semi finals of the World Cup.
The Atlas Lions of Morocco beat Portugal 1 nil to advance to the next stage with renowned footballer Cristiano Ronaldo bowing out of the tournament in years.
Youseff En-Nesyri’s header in the 42 minutes of the quarter-final game was the lone goal that eliminated Bruno Fernandes’ dreams at the Qatar World Cup.
Morocco have surpassed the three other African sides to reach the quarter-finals — Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010.
