Portugal and Morocco clash with each other in a Group B encounter at FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
Portugal is coming off the from that sensational 3-3 draw against Spain. The two teams met each other in their first game and put on a show.
Captain Cristiano Ronaldo was in phenomenal form and bagged all three goals. He scored a penalty, a long-range effort and completed his hattrick by a sumptuous freekick.
He made a statement about himself and the team’s character and they won’t go down easily.
However, Fernando Santos needs to make some changes. Even though Portugal played a decent game, they were exposed in the middle of the park. William Carvalho was almost invisible during the game and he needs to help Joao Moutinho in maintaining possession.
Morocco who is the most successful team from Africa in the World Cup started off the game on the wrong foot. An own goal led to their demise against Iran. The forward players need to take responsibility, however and have to help Hakim Ziyech more often. They were way too defensive and gave Iran more respect than they deserved
If Morocco had deployed their gameplan, the scoreline could’ve been different.
Regardless, this tie between the two teams is an important matchup as both teams need a win to gain points for qualification.
