Morocco have qualified for the World Cup Round of 16 for the first time in 30 years and doing it in a massive style by qualifying as group leaders after 2-1 win against Canada.

Two first half goals were enough for Morocco to get their second win of the tournament and progress as table toppers.

Hakim Ziyech lofted the ball into an almost empty net after capitalizing on a defensive and goalkeeping error from the Canadians.

Youssef En-Nesyri made it 2-0 after getting on the back of a well layes ball from Archaf Hakimi.

Nayef Aguerd also got on the end of Sam Adekugbe’s cross to make it 2-1 and put Canada back in contention.

The second half ended goalless despite much attempt from Canada to score an equalizer.

Atiba Hutchinson’s header came back off the crossbar and bounced on to the goal-line before Johnston turned the rebound over.
