Following a 1-0 win over group leaders, Colombia this thursday, August 3rd, the Atlas Lionesses of Morocco have secured a place in the round of 16.
They join Nigeria and South Africa in this stage of the competition as runners-up from Group H with six points, level on point with Colombia.
Germany’s one all draw against South Korea made it an easy passage for the African representatives to sail through second place from the group, thereby eliminating the bottom two(Germany and South Korea respectively).
This is the first time Germany have ever failed to cross pass the group stage at the Women’s World Cup. Despite thrashing Morocco 6-0 in the first game, the Lionesses advance ahead of them.
After the Atlas Lions pulled the surprise results in the men’s World Cup tournament in Qatar last year, the women’s team are embarking on their own incredible journey in Australia and New Zealand.
In just their first appearance at the women’s biggest football set-piece, the Lionesses look promising to bring out more surprise results after managing to sail through from a very tough group with Germany who is ranked 2nd in the World and had never failed to cross pass the group stage.
Morocco will face France in the round of 16 on Tuesday, August 8. while Colombia takes on Jamaica.
Coach Reynald Sebastian Pedros and girls will have a hard nut to crack next Tuesday, going against five time participant, who finished top in group F.
