Morocco beat Portugal to reach World Cup semi-finals

Morocco’s incredible World Cup campaign continues.

The North Africans have reached the tournament’s semi-finals after beating Portugal 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

The huge match, which was played Al Thumama Stadium, saw Morocco’s Youssef En-Nesyri score what turned out to be the game’s winning goal in the 43rd minute.

Climbing highest to get on the end of a cross from teammate Yahia Attiyat Allah, En-Nesyri headed his country into a lead, which the country managed to hold on to, despite being under pressure for large parts of the game.
