Live coverage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup match between Morocco and runner-up Croatia.
The second half of Morocco vs. Croatia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup has begun. Even after a stressful first half, the score remains tied at zero. Croatia had some good scoring opportunities, but Morocco held firm and made numerous incursions inside the Croatian penalty area. Hakim Ziyech, a winger for Chelsea, started on the right side of a three-man assault for Morocco in their World Cup opener against Croatia in Doha.
Mazraoui started at left back alongside PSG’s Achraf Hakimi, and Selim Amallah, who had been out with an injury, is back in the starting lineup at midfield. It’s worth noting that Croatia’s captain, Luka Modric, was one of four players to start in their 2018 World Cup Final loss to France in Moscow. Zlatko Dalic’s squad also includes Dejan Lovren, Marcelo Brozovic, and Ivan Perisic.
Second-place finishers Croatia face Morocco in their opening match of the tournament. Luka Modric, who will turn 37 in November, will likely never play in another World Cup, and this game is your last chance to witness his greatness before he retires. The Moroccans may call on stars like Hakim Ziyech and Achraf Hakimi. The two teams are part of Group F alongside Belgium and Canada.
Today in Al Khor, Group F officially begins with the first of four World Cup games. The perennial underdogs Croatia are playing their first game on football’s biggest stage since losing to France 4-2 in the 2018 final in Moscow. During that memorable campaign, they defeated teams like England and Argentina to even outperform their 1998 performance.
A strong start is crucial in what seems to be a challenging group that also includes Belgium and Canada. Zlatko Dalic’s team will seek to replicate their fantastic form from Russia in Qatar. Luka Modric, who is unfailingly reliable, will lead the charge. The first opponent is Morocco, who is making their second consecutive World Cup appearance after a 20-year hiatus.
On their sixth occasion, the Atlas Lions are attempting to go to the elimination rounds for the first time after being heartbreakingly eliminated by Egypt at the quarterfinal stage of the most recent Africa Cup of Nations. Watch live coverage of Croatia vs. Morocco at Al Bayt Stadium below.
