From the stadium that hosted the match, Al Thumana, to the main streets of Europe and Africa, fans erupted with celebrations for Morocco’s qualification to the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Morocco eliminated Portugal in the quarterfinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup to become the first African team to qualify for a World Cup semifinal. Looking a little further, it is found that it is the second nation outside of UEFA and CONMEBOL that will play 7 matches in the tournament.
How could it be otherwise, the celebration of the Moroccans exploded in the Al Thumana Stadium and both the videos and the photographs quickly became a trend.
The player Sofiane Boufal, one of the figures of Morocco, represented one of the most epic photographs when celebrating her triumph by dancing with her mother on the pitch.
The Moroccan team players themselves bowed on their knees before their fans while from the stands they shouted their hearts out.
The Moroccan fans had a great party outside of Qatar.
The streets of London were flooded with followers of the Moroccan team, who were also accompanied by different members of the Arab community.
Now, Morocco will face the winner between France and England in the semifinals, a game they will come to with just one goal against, which they conceded in the match against Canada, and it was somewhat against.
