How the two teams fared in the Round of 16
Morocco and Portugal had different paths leading to the quarter-final, but they both proved they had what it takes to win. Here’s a look back on how they pushed their way through the Round of 16:
Morocco vs Spain
One of the biggest games in the Round of 16 was Morocco’s unexpected triumph against constant World Cup contenders, Spain. Fans did not expect a strong finish from the African nation as the odds were heavily stacked against them. Morocco held their ground as they forced the game into extra time to the penalties for a 3-0 winning score.
The penalties turned the tide of the game. Morocco scored their first two shots before a miss in their third attempt from Badr Benoun. Spain, on the other hand, missed all three. Achraf Hakimi finally nailed the winning goal to push Morocco to the quarter-finals.
Portugal vs Switzerland
Unlike Morocco and Spain’s showdown, the battle between Portugal and Switzerland was rather dull as it was a lopsided game. The Navigators dominated from start to finish, even with Cristiano Ronaldo being benched by the squad. Goncalo Ramos’ hat-trick led the way for their scoring, sealing the deal early in the game.
Switzerland had no answer for Portugal’s big attacks. Granit Xhaka could not do enough damage, and only Manuel Akanji managed to score for the squad. The Swiss were also lacking on the defensive end, which proves how easy it was for Portugal to have full control from start to finish.
