Morocco are through to the 16 rounds of the World Cup, for the second time in their history after an early pair of goals from Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri at the 3rd and 22nd minutes . Against Canada on Thursday,1st December 2022, at the Al Thumama Stadium.

The Canadian managed to grab their lone puller, at the 39th minutes through the brilliance of Aguerd.

Down by 2-0 at the 40th minutes, Canada got on the board when Morocco defender Nayef Aguerd, deflected a shot attempt from Sam Adekugbe off goalkeeper Yassine Bounou and into the net.

48th minutes afterwards, Morocco appeared to have its third goal of the game when En-Nesyri punched in a score, but it was quickly ruled offside. Just like that, Morocco kept its 2-1 lead at halftime.

Dominated by one goal, Canada had a couple of scoring opportunities, the first coming on a header from Atiba Hutchinson that went off the crossbar. Hutchinson’s shot bounced back up to Alistair Johnston, whose header went above the net.Canada never evened the score, losing 2-1.
