Morocco the First African Team to Make it to World Cup Semi-Finals

Morroco has left the world stunned with their historic win against the ferocious Portugal, and in the process, became the first African nation to ever make it to the Semi-Finals.

The most watched and revered FIFA football tournament just saw history being made, as fans rooting for Morrocco in Doha’s stadium roared with pride while the players bowed their heads in prostration, a gesture of appreciation to the Lord performed by several Muslims accross the globe.

Tonight’s glorious performance by the Moroccan football team has won the hearts of millions, not necessarily just football fans, for the team’s humility, devout faith and courage to stand up for what they believe in. The players fearlessly draped the Palestinian flag when they won against Spain in the knockout round, which was another blow to the football world when the former colonizers of Morroco lost during the penalty rounds.

Youssef En-Nesyri scored the only goal of the match just before half-time. Legendary footballer Christiano Ronaldo joined the match after half-time but despite his unbeatable skills, Portugal still lost against the North African nation.

While Morocco moves towards the Semi-Finals, the world watches with bated breath, hoping for the champion nation to create history by being the first ever African nation to win the World Cup.
