Their eyes are now further afield, on the World Cup trophy. “This team of ours has been loved by everyone in the World Cup. Because we have been able to show the world – you can be successful even if you don’t have money, you can win even if you don’t have talent. Morocco is now an example in front of everyone.’

Coach Regregui’s words of confidence were rising after sending off Ronaldo. At first, many called this rise of Morocco a ‘fluke’. But the defense of this North African country has surprised everyone.

Morocco can dream of winning the World Cup by reaching the top four. What we have done so far is not a miracle. Many say, especially the Europeans, that Morocco caused the accident.
