Morocco continued their successful journey in the World Cup this afternoon as they managed to beat Portugal by one goal to nil. AC Milan star Rafael Leao has thus been knocked out of the tournament.
Morocco created a bunch of chances in the first half and eventually managed to take the lead after a goalkeeping error. They had a few good chances after that as well but above all defended really well to keep Portugal very quiet.
Rafael Leao came off the bench once again, just like the other games, and got around 30 minutes on the pitch in total. It was a game that perhaps didn’t suit him well, with Morocco sitting back, but he still managed to create the most for Portugal.
Questions will surely be asked about Portugal manager Fernando Santos as he not only misused Leao, but also benched Cristiano Ronaldo. Having said that, credit must also be given to Morocco who played yet another good game.
