BREAKING NEWS! Morocco Knock Spain Out Of The World Cup
Achraf Hakimi made himself a hero with a chipped winning penalty as Morocco stunned Spain in a shootout after a goalless draw to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.
The two teams played out a draw after 120 minutes and Spain failed to convert any of their three penalties – goalkeeper Yaccine Bounou saving two – leaving PSG’s Hakimi to win it with a nerveless ‘Panenka’ to spark jubilant scenes.
The north African side’s fans had been making themselves heard all game but the atmosphere in the stands did not match the attritional battle on the pitch.
