Walid Regragui, Morocco’s coach, has provided an explanation for his team’s 1-0 victory over Portugal in Saturday’s Qatari semi-final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Goldennewsng reports that Regragui claimed that “hard work” was the reason his team beat Portugal at the Al Thumama Stadium.
After the Atlas Lions became the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the competition, he claims that Morocco is “the Rocky Balboa of this World Cup.”
Morocco needed only a header from Youssef En-Nesyri in the first half to make it to the last four, where they will play World Cup holders France on Wednesday.
In his post-game press conference, Regragui stated to reporters, “When you watch Rocky, you want to support Rocky Balboa because of his hard work and commitment.” “I think we’re the Rocky Balboa of this World Cup.”
“At this World Cup, we are becoming the team that everyone adores because we are demonstrating that even if you do not possess as much talent, you can accomplish anything if you show that you have the desire, heart, and belief to do so.
We have won without conceding against Belgium, Spain, and Portugal, and that is the result of hard work. I am sure many of you will say this is a miracle.
He went on to say, “We can dream; why shouldn’t we dream of winning the World Cup?”
