Half-time Portugal 1 Morocco 0 CR7 Again. Poor defending from Morocco as they allow Ronaldo to charge into the box and head home a corner. Too easy for the talisman.
Morocco was somewhat unlucky against Iran and that theme has only continued today. The north Africans dominated almost every facet of the game, yet it is Portugal who leads, courtesy of that man Ronaldo. The Portuguese have been very poor as a whole.
I‘m not convinced we’re going to see Guerreiro in the second half. This time the Portugal left-back stupidly bundles Amrabat over by the corner flag to gift Morocco a free-kick. The delivery is good, Belhanda flicks it on at the front post and Benatia is inches away from turning it in, but he cannot reach it on the stretch. Very close.
Waiting for another exciting second half.
