Belgium has never lost against an African nation in the World Cup group stage. They have not lost in their last 8 matches played in the first round. But the unbeaten streak was broken in their 50th match in the World Cup. Last year’s semi-finalists lost 2-0 to Morocco today.
This is the third incident in the World Cup for Qatar, the favorite judge. Earlier, Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia, and Germany to Japan.
Despite losing the match in the ‘F’ group, Belgium still has an open way to advance to the second round. 3 points for the team after defeating Canada in the first match. Morocco’s draw with Croatia now has 4 points.
Morocco ranked 22nd in the FIFA ranking defeated Belgium in second place in the FIFA list 2-0. Hakim Ziyez and Achraf Hakimid’s Morocco did not allow a team rich in Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, and Thorgan Hazard to play.

Belgium entered the field against Morocco with the equation that they will get the ticket to the last sixteen if they win on this day. But there was no edge in their game. Morocco had a goal disallowed in the first half by Var. Morocco got their revenge in the second half. Goals from Abdelhamid Saberi in the 73rd minute of the match and Zakaria Abukhal in the 92nd minute of added time saw them blow away Belgium.
The 2-0 loss leaves Belgium in a bit of danger. The last match will be against Croatia. If only a little here and there, the farewell bell can ring! Currently, the team has 3 points in 2 matches and is in second place on the list. Morocco topped the group with 4 points from the draw.
It should be noted that despite winning against Canada, Belgium was not in the best rhythm when it entered Qatar with the title of favorite. It was expected that they might regain their composure against Morocco. But what if, on the contrary, the De Bruynes lost against the African country?
Belgium’s opponents Croatia, and Morocco will play against Canada in the last match of the group stage on December 1.
