The Morocco team has the chance to extend their stay in Qatar beyond the group stages when they go up against Canada at the Al Thumama Stadium on Thursday in a World Cup Group F match. On the other hand, Canada is already eliminated, but there are some huge implications on this fixture for their opponents.
There are many potential outcomes surrounding the final matchday in Group F, which stays incredibly tight and surprisingly tough to call. However, things can be somewhat easy for Morocco, either pick up a win or draw and they progress regardless of what else happens in the other match in the group.
But if they lose, then things do get a bit fuzzy, as they would then need one of two things to happen: Croatia losing by at least two goals more than they do, or Belgium losing in order to progress. If Morocco ends up losing by 4 or more goals, then even a draw in the other group match would eliminate them out too.
Now looking at Canada, they have also been impressive and easy on the eye, creating many opportunities with pace out wide and presence on the front. Unfortunately for them, their Qatar journey is over. Their best hope is to not finish on zero points again like they did in 1986.
Being very naive at the back and in their overall structure got them picked apart ruthlessly by a ruthless Croatia side in a 4-1 loss on Sunday. If it were not for some amazing saves from goalkeeper Milan Borjan, the game might have ended in a much worse state for them.
Also, they are lacking a solid youthful squad available to move forward to the next World Cup, which they are co-hosting. This year, Canada was just very unfortunate to be drawn against the second and third-placed teams from 2018, and possibly Africa’s strongest team at these finals.
