Striker Youssef En-Nesyri scored the winning goal in the first half, leaping highest to beat goalkeeper Diogo Costa to the ball at Al Thumama Stadium as the Arab country secured a 1-0 win.

The north African side’s supporters populated most of the venue and joyously celebrated their breakthrough moment for their continent on the global stage.

Morocco show it is possible for Africa to shortly have more teams in the World Cup semi-final, and even in the final,” Mosengo-Omba said.

The Moroccan result will, for sure, galvanise the entire continent. But galvanising and dreaming is not enough to grow [the game] and make African football more competitive to win the World Cup. It needs concrete actions and long-term efforts.”

Morocco will face holders France in the semifinals at Al Bayt Stadium on Wednesday.
