Morocco vs. Iran - Football Match Report

Shannon Reynolds | 15 June, 2018, 22:41

Iran head into the match against Morocco in Group B on the back of a hard build-up to the tournament overall, after friendly matches against Greece and Kosovo were also cancelled. "It is vital to get points in the opening match".

"As an experienced coach, I would like to say Iran and Morocco have a chance of winning the match but it would be great Iran win the match".

Iran stole a late victory Thursday against Morocco as defender Aziz Bouhaddouz headed the ball into his own net in the 95th minute.

Iran became the second team to qualify for the World Cup after Brazil and will be eager to improve on its 2014 World Cup performance, when it finished last in its group and scored one goal.

Harit's neat footwork took him into the box and he drew a save from Beiranvand with a side-footed shot as Morocco continued to press.

In 2012 TTP tried to assassinate Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, then an 11-year-old who promoted girls' right to education. Islamabad says the Pakistani Taliban maintain sanctuaries in Afghanistan.

Amrabat continued to make inroads down the right flank for Morocco after the interval while their efficiency and organisation at the back cut out Iran's counter-attacks before they reached the final third.

After instantly fencing (the unnatural, subconscious movement of his arms and hands) as he lay prostrate and dazed, Amrabat was duly subbed off and replaced by his younger brother, Sofyan, but not before Morocco's physios administered some truly and utterly inept first aid.

Morocco pushed for a victor in the final 10 minutes and Hakim Ziyech lashed the ball towards the bottom-left corner of the net from 20 yards but Beiranvand pulled off a smart stop.

Well, that's exactly what happened Friday, the second day of World Cup play.
