Morocco Beats Brazil 2-1 In International Friendly


Morocco defeated Brazil 2-1 in a friendly match on Saturday at the Tanger Stadium, Grand Stade de Tanger, extending the North Africans’ incredible run that saw them reach the World Cup semi-finals in December 2022.

The Atlas Lions had a fantastic performance in front of their home fans in their first game after the World Cup, while the Samba youngsters suffered another setback following their sad elimination from the World Cup.

The Brazilians had a few of excellent chances early in the first half, but none of them were converted.

Sofiane Boufal gave Morocco the lead 29 minutes into the game with a superb turn in the penalty box before hitting into the left corner, leaving Brazil behind by one goal at the half.

Brazil resumed control of the game in the second half, playing better and harder.

However, the Samba Boys were unable to penetrate Morocco’s defense line.

Manchester United’s Casemiro equalised for Samba Boys in the 67th minute with a curl from outside the 18-yard box.

Morocco would, however, not allow the game to end in a tie.

In the 79th minute, Abedelhamid Sabiri scored for Morocco, smashing a shot into the Brazilian net.

With their victory over five-time World Cup champion Brazil on Saturday, Morocco proved once again that their World Cup success last year was no fluke.
