World Cup: If Playing against Morocco watch Hakim Ziyech. Africa is Two in the Knockout big time. Ghana Today

2 mins read

You just cannot give Ziyech a shot in goal with his lethal left foot with an open goal. It is going into the net. Period.

Morocco advanced to the World Cup knockout stage for the first time since 1986 as they defeated Canada 2-1 to not only qualify for the Round of 16 but win Group F.

Belgium’s failure to score against Croatia means they are out, while Morocco finished on top and Croatia in second. It’s scenes for the African nation, whose first-half goals from Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri paved the way for all three points.

At the other end, Canada once again put forth a spirited effort but came away with nothing, punished for their defensive mistakes yet again. Their lone strike came just before the half via an own goal from Naif Aguerd who deflected a Sam Adekugbe cross into the back of the net.

Les Rouges come away with no points at a World Cup for the second time in as many appearances, while Morocco is on top and see their way through to the knockout stage.

And even Lukaku our friend from the DRC who plays for Belgium couldn’t get it done against Croatia and Belgium is done. Bure kabisa.

So two big teams expected to go to the end of the World Cup are out. That is Belgium and Germany and Africa keeps rolling with two more chances out of the two they already have for the knockout.

We need Ghana there and if Cameroon makes it I will be dancing in the streets of Toronto all day long. Someone will have to call the police to stop me. It is very good already for Africa.
