Did Munir's 13 minutes cost Morocco at the World Cup?

Morocco have certainly won many admirers at this World Cup, even if they became the first side eliminated from the tournament when they were defeated 1-0 by Portugal at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday.

That loss, coupled with their shock opening defeat by Iran means that the Atlas Lions cannot advance to the Last 16, capping off a miserable week in which they also lost the World Cup 2026 bid.

However, while elimination was felt painfully by the many Moroccan fans in attendance in Moscow...

As Morocco become the first team to exit the World Cup, Andrew Kabuura and Daniel Amokachi break down how Cristiano Ronaldo was able to lead Portugal to a win.

Morocco's Nordin Amrabat has revealed he took the decision to play in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Portugal despite suffering a concussion against Iran five days ago.

"They [the Morocco head coach and the team doctor] asked me last night how I felt and it was my decision to play. I wanted to play, I told them and I played," he told ESPN FC on Wednesday.

The Morocco midfielder was aware that he could put his safety at risk, though, by playing again so quickly after his concussion.
