MOROCCAN MARVEL | Morocco beat Portugal to go through to World Cup semifinal

Morocco extended their dream run at the Fifa World Cup in Qatar on Saturday as they out-thought and outfought Portugal in a 1-0 win to become the first ever African country to reach the semifinals thanks to a towering headed goal from Youssef En-Nesyri.

In the 42nd minute En-Nesyri leapt above the Portugal defenders to meet a Yahya Attiat-Allah cross, getting just enough of his head to the ball to tip it past goalkeeper Diogo Costa, who misread its flight and crashed into his own defender.

Portugal meanwhile struggled to break through the Moroccan defence, Bruno Fernandes coming closest with a shot off the bar shortly after Morocco’s goal.
