Morocco are in the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup. The Atlas Lions qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament after their victory this Thursday against Canada (2-1), on the occasion of the third and last day of group F. Indeed facing the Canucks in a match played at the Al Thumama stadium, the Cherifian team disposed of the Canadians on goals from Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri.
A feat celebrated by an entire people, starting with the players and the technical staff. Author of the opener and great craftsman of this successful journey of the Moroccans in the group stage, Hakim Ziyech could not hold back his tears in the mixed zone.
“It’s historic, it’s exceptional. We are proud. These are the only words I can find. I still had success on my first goal. You said it, we can just feel pride. We fought collectively. We can be proud, ”said the Chelsea striker at the microphone of BeIn sport.
Landed a few months on the Moroccan bench to replace the sacked Vahid Halilhodžić, Walid Regragui also did not have the words to explain this dream become a reality. “We suffered today, there were a lot of injuries but we showed a great state of mind. We wanted to go down in history. It was not obvious this pressure…
We scored seven points for an African country. We are happy for the people. It was not given to everyone to finish first against the vice-world champion and the semi-finalist, we were keen to show what we were worth, we were criticized, we African nations. But Africa has good players, good coaches, you have to savor it but we haven’t done anything. We are just in the round of 16, ”the Moroccan coach told the Qatari channel.
