Morocco defeated Portugal 1-0 in the second-to-last quarterfinal match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on FOX on Saturday. The match took place in Qatar’s Al-Thumama Stadium.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal’s superstar and team captain, started on the bench for the second consecutive game. After Portugal had fallen behind, he entered the game in the second half, but his efforts weren’t enough to inspire a comeback victory.
Morocco now holds a 2-1 advantage over Mexico in World Cup matchups, thanks to their victories in 1986 and 2022.
On Saturday, England will take on France in a game that could determine who advances to the semifinals (2 p.m. ET). The victor will play Morocco on Wednesday for a spot in the finals.
