Morocco Player Ratings vs Belgium: Super-Subs Stun Red Devils

Prior to the encounter between Morocco and Belgium, the Atlas Lions would have been satisfied with a draw against the European giants. But as the match progressed, it felt that a lone point wouldn’t do the North Africans any justice. At the end of the day, the Moroccans grabbed a well-deserved win with two unanswered goals from substitutes Abdelhamid Sabiri and Zakaria Aboukhlal. So here are our player ratings for Morocco who now sit on top of Group F following their historic 2-0 victory over Belgium.

Morocco (4-3-3)

Munir Mohamedi – 7

A solid display from the custodian who denied Hazard, Batshuayi and Mertens with great saves to preserve a clean sheet.

Achraf Hakimi – 6

Perhaps it wasn’t the most enchanting display from the PSG fullback, but he still contributed with some dangerous balls and runs. Had a tough duel against his former BVB teammate Thorgan Hazard.

Naif Aguerd – 7

A wonderful display at the back from the West Ham man who kept Batshuayi in his pocket for most of the match.

Romain Saiss – 7

Similarly to his defensive partner, the centre-back was both solid and confident at the back, and even helped in bringing the ball forward on some occasions.

Noussair Mazraoui – 6.5

The Bayern Munich man usually darts forward at will, but this time he produced a more cautious display, lending a helping hand for the centre-backs.

Azzedine Ounahi – 6.5

An industrious outing from the Morocco midfielder who ran hard from start to finish, even if he rarely made himself noticed.

Sofyan Amrabat – 7

The Fiorentina man was the commander in chief in the middle of the park. Won back countless balls and shielded the backline brilliantly. A true Lion.

Selim Amallah – 6

The midfielder was arguably the weakest link in the line, but it wasn’t a poor display by any means. He was slightly wasteful on the ball, but made up for it with his energetic runs.

Hakim Ziyech – 7.5

A top-notch display from the Chelsea wantaway who was a true thorn in the back for the Belgians. Tested Courtois with a shot and had actually broke the deadlock with a cheeky freekick which was ruled out by VAR. He also provided the assist for Aboukhlal’s goal.

Youssef En-Nesyri – 5.5

A hard working display from the Sevilla striker, but never made himself a threat for Alderweireld and Vertonghen.

Sofiane Boufal – 7

A lively display from the Angers winger who caused headaches for Meunier with his deft tricks and skills.

Yahia Attiyat Allah – 6

The fullback took the torch from Hakimi and kept supporting his teammates from the right flank both offensively and defensively.

Adelhamid Sabiri – 7

We told you before the start of the tournament to keep an eye on this man. Stunned Courtois with a superb freekick from the most acute of angles. A super-sub indeed.

Abderrazak Hamdallah – 6

The striker fought hard against the Belgian defenders, producing some space for his teammates.

Zakaria Aboukhlal – 7

Another substitute who delivered a goal following his introduction. Gave the goalkeeper no chance as he smashed the ball home from close range.

Jawad El Yamiq – 6

The midfielder added some timely energy for the middle of the park in the final minutes.
