Morocco and Spain will face off in a mouth-watering round of 16 matchup as the exciting Moroccan side imagine their chances of causing disappointment.

Remember: there are only 8 miles between Spain and Morocco, and there is a lot of history and rivalry between the two countries.

LIVE MOROCCO vs. SPAIN

After winning Group F and going undefeated, Morocco was a pleasant surprise in this tournament. They have a talented core and their relatively new head coach Walid Regragui did a great job of pulling them together as a unit and they were so hard to break.

As for Spain, they started the World Cup with a terrific start, beating Costa Rica 7-0, but their draw against Germany and defeat against Japan left a lot to be desired. Finishing second in Group E, Luis Enrique will be wary of disappointment here as his side will have plenty of ball but need to regain their clinical advantage.

Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

Morocco’s stars shone in this World Cup with Hakim Ziyech so dangerous in attack plus Ashraf Hakimi exceptional on the right flank, while Sofyan Amrabat was a rock in central midfield and Romain Saiss set an example in defence. The main thing that I like about this Moroccan team is their unity, they are very difficult to play against and they are very well organized. But when they get a chance to get the ball, they are straight forward and their wingers quickly come to life.

The Spaniards’ talents are well known as Gavi and Pedri run the show in midfield, but Enrique needs more from his strikers. So far, Morata has converted chances well, but the likes of Dani Olmo, Ferran Torres, Marco Asensio and Ansu Fati have to take advantage of them if Spain are to succeed in this tournament.

Switzerland, meanwhile, will feel like they have as good a chance as anyone to make a breakthrough in the tournament by beating Cameroon and Serbia, staying within Brazil’s goal of world No. 1 in a close defeat in the group stage.

Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

The full Portugal squad is something to look out for as Rubén Dias, Rubén Neves and Bruno Fernandes give the team a strong backbone that can just as much surpass Cristiano Ronaldo when the great player is at his best, challenging the 37-year-old age.

The Swiss saw Bril Embolo as a threat at the top, but defenders and midfield have so many tough nuts to crack that Granit Xhaka has Manuel Akanji and Fabian Shar operating.

Five-time world champions Brazil put on a five-star performance as they thrashed South Korea 4-1 in the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup on Monday.

WATCH FULL MATCH REPLAY

Brazil has a quarter-final clash ahead of Croatia, who survived 120 minutes and penalties to beat Japan earlier on Monday.

Goals were scored early, scored often and in style.

Vinicius Junior opened the scoring in seventh with a refined, calm finish over a sea of ​​bodies, while Neymar, who had returned from an ankle injury he suffered 11 days earlier, made it 2-0 from a penalty just six minutes later. That’s when the samba style came into being, when the game was actually in hand and there were 77 minutes of must-see TV entertainment left.

Richarlison, who had already scored a likely goal of the tournament in Brazil’s opener, may have outdone himself with sensational flair and skill (and a decent pass from some equally brilliant teammates), making it 3-0 just before the half-hour mark and reminding the rest of the world. that Brazil was not just a favorite before the World Cup.

Lucas Paqueta scored the #1.4 goal after another sensational, fluid counterattack by the yellow shirts racing forward. Vinicius lifted the last ball above the crowd and selected a West Ham midfielder who landed a perfect kick with the inside of his right foot.

Paik Seung Ho scored a fantastic consolation goal with 15 minutes left in the second half, but it was South Korea’s ultimate joy as they failed to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since co-hosting the World Cup in 2002. when they reached the semi-finals.
