The Atlas Lions of Morocco have stunned Belgium, one of the pre-tournament favourites, to claim a 2-0 victory on Sunday afternoon.
A goal apiece from Abdelhamid Sabiri and Zakaria Aboukhlal ensured coach Walid Regragui’s side claimed all three points after Hakim Ziyech’s goal was disallowed by the Virtual Assistant Referee (VAR).
Belgium once again failed to live up to billing despite parading an array of stars in top European teams.
Flashes of brilliance from Manchester City midfield maestro, Kevin De Bruyne failed to yield any positive result.
With the victory, Morocco brightened their chances of a round of 16 qualification from Group F, having held 2018 finalists, Croatia to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday.
