Morocco qualified as Group F winners to reach the knockout stages of the World Cup for just the second time after beating Canada.
A howler from the Canada keeper allowed Hakim Ziyech to put Morocco in front with a chipped effort within the first five minutes. Things got worse for the next term’s hosts, midway through the first half, when Youssef En-Nesyri latched onto a long ball and finished brilliantly as the Atlas Lions made the most of their dominance.
Canada had some fortune and pulled one back just before half-time when Nayef Aguerd deflected a cross into his own goal. However, Morocco defended resiliently to make history by getting out the group for just the second time ever.
