Even though it is not the Sunday final, Morocco may be proud that they are playing in their seventh match at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, according to head coach Walid Regragui.
They made history by being the first country from Africa to go to the semifinals, but on Wednesday they were defeated by France.
They play 2018 WC finalists Croatia on Saturday in the game that will determine who comes in third. Morocco and Croatia will both end the tournament as they began it - by facing each other. On November 23 at the Al Bayt Stadium, the two nations fought to a scoreless draw in Group F, but Regragui anticipates a more favourable matchup on Saturday.
