Team Form



A win and a noteworthy draw, Morocco proves to be one of the strong contenders in its group.


Morocco clinched its first victory against the aggressive Croatia. The former nailed 3 goals, 2 of them came from Karim Achahbar while Nabil Jaadi delivered their final and winning score. Croatia’s Robert Muric scored a lone goal for the Croats. Unfortunately, the pressure they pressed among the Moroccans did little damage.




After a convincing win, Morocco needed to step back a little as their match against Uzbekistan ended in a goalless stalemate. The draw was a double-edged sword. On one hand, such result was better than a loss. Yet, the other side of the story hints a little dose of regret. Nevertheless, what is more important is that Morocco remains strong.



Panama just stumbled from a 2 consecutive defeat and faces the risk of having an early exit in the competition.


Panama’s first match also ended in their first defeat in the tournament. Pitted against Asia’s champ, Uzbekistan, the latter scored 2 late goals courtesy of Shohjahon Abbasov and Rustamjon Ashurmatov.


They had another opportunity during the Croatian encounter. Yet, Panama suffered another major defeat. The Croats’ very own Ante Roguljic netted the squad’s first and last goal in the match.


Morocco 3-0 Panama

Panama struggles with their scoring. Its last 2 matches saw them endure a clean sheet. Due to this, Morocco stands as the heavy favorite of this match.
