The continent of Africa has had a very good representation at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with the five teams creating memorable records. Morocco who is one of Africa’s five representatives has proven to be the best amongst them all. The Atlas Lions played out a barren draw with the La Roja of Spain in a Round of 16 encounter of the 2022 FIFA World Cup played at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan. Spain got knocked out on Penalties after failing to convert all of their spot kicks while their opponents scored three out of four. The 3-0 win on penalties sent Morocco into the Quarterfinals of the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup alongside Argentina, Portugal, Switzerland, France, England, Netherlands and Poland.
Morocco became the fourth African nation in the history of the World Cup to qualify for the quarter-final. In a post match reaction to the outcome of the game, Angers SCO and Moroccan winger Sofiane Boufal praised the natives of Morocco, Arabs and Muslims across the world for their immense support. The 29-year-old went on to dedicate the hard earned win to the Muslim faithfuls and Arabs across the globe, neglecting the continent of Africa as a whole.
