The Croats and the Moroccans (CRO vs MOR) met for the 2nd time in this 2022 FIFA World Cup after the group stage. This time around, however, Croatia and Morocco will compete for a bronze medal in a third-place playoff at the Khalifa International Stadium, and neither team should turn down a podium finish on the biggest stage.
Croatia – An unfortunate defeat at the hands of Messi and company shattered their dreams of qualifying for their second World Cup final. Croatiaa team that has consistently shown their prowess in extra time and in penalty shootouts will not be relieved to learn that the third-place playoff has never been decided on penalties.
Morocco – MoroccoThe first African nation to reach a World Cup semi-final, they could have become the first team from the continent to reach the final had it not been for a lack of killer instinct in the final third. Walid Regragui’s team certainly scared France in Wednesday’s semifinal, but Theo Hernandez’s acrobatic effort and Randal Kolo Muani’s touch 44 seconds into the field ended the Atlas Lions’ hopes of becoming champions of Qatar.
