The Atlas Lions of Morocco have stunned Belgium 2#0 to edge towards qualification from Group F at the ongoing FIFA world cup in Qatar.
Goals from Zakaria Aboukhlal and Abdelhamid Sabiri secured Morocco’s famous win over Belgium at the grandest stage of them all – the World Cup.
Abdelhamid Sabiri scored from a dangerous freekick from a tight angle before fellow substitute Zakaria Aboukhal scored the second from an Hakim Ziyech assist in stoppage time.
Sabiri’s 73rd-minute free kick from near the corner flag caught out Thibaut Courtois at his near post.
Aboukhal’s goal came from a counter-attack set up by Hakim Ziyech as Belgium we’re caught pressing forward for the equalizer.
Morocco’s victory is only their third-ever victory in the FIFA World Cup.
The North Africans had earlier found the back of the net before half time but VAR found Romain Saiss offside.
Morocco’s victory takes them to 4 points in two games while Belgium is second with 3 points.
