Morocco Fans Honor Their Team Despite Semifinal Loss: Twitter Flooded in Support of Morocco

Morocco fans proud despite World Cup loss.

Al Bayt Stadium: There was a hope that Morocco would make it to the finals. Fans from all over the world, and not just from Morocco, had hit the snooze button in order to allow the dream to continue on for a little while longer, stretching it for the additional minutes of that last hurrah.

Watch the World Cup Final between Argentina and France on 18th December 2022, and witness history in the making.

Morocco had surpassed all expectations by advancing to the semifinals of the World Cup in Qatar 2022, achieving this feat by claiming victories over Belgium, Canada, Spain, and Portugal along the way.

On the other hand, Argentina at Lusail Stadium on the same Wednesday evening stood as another behemoth of international football. This was undoubtedly the greatest, toughest, and truest test of whether or not Qatar 2022 was a dream for Morocco.

Since defeating Belgium, Morocco has had high hopes of advancing to the round of 16. After their victory over Spain, expectations began to rise. After the victory over Portugal, belief replaced wishful thinking.

However, at Al Bayt Stadium – either because of the introduction of a new football, the occasion or merely the skills gap between the two sets of players – the dream did not come true in the way that Morocco had hoped it would.

Morocco received a flood of support and respect on Twitter following their semi-final loss to France:

Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper for France, had to face a breathtaking shot attempt made by Jawad El Yamiq, a defender for Morocco. This occurred near the end of the first half.

The end of first half allowed France to keep their 1-0 lead, but the highlight of the game was the bicycle kick by the Moroccan.

The Moroccan supporters did not show the smallest bit of discouragement despite their team being behind for the majority of the day. This is how they appeared before the game:

Morocco and its supporters left an everlasting impression by the support, even though they were eliminated from the tournament:

An outstanding performance by the French national team on the field ensured that the Atlas Lions would not end the tournament any higher than third place in the World Cup.

“This is football, that’s how it works,” Fatima, a Moroccan supporter, said after the 2-0 loss. “But we’re really proud of the team. Moroccan football has totally changed now. This is not a loss, no way. We are the champions.”

After the final whistle blew, the squad gathered in the middle of the field for a huddle. The French squad was ecstatic to learn that they had advanced to a second consecutive final. In the meantime, Morocco basked in the fame, respect, and incredible heights that they had reached.

The crowd in the stands chanted “Morocco, Morocco” and “seer, seer” (which translates to “go, go”), but they did not do so in harmony as they had during the previous matches. Although some fans left the stadium earlier than others, the majority of those wearing red and green remained and applauded the players as they made one final prostration in prayer on the pitch.

“Proud, proud, proud. That’s how I’m feeling right now,” Amine, another Moroccan supporter, said. “They made history, they’re still a young team and now we have ambition for future world cups. We’re not going to give up now. It’s a change of a mindset, there’s a winning mentality instilled in the players, the team and the country now. This will change our future generations.”

Youssra was in tears not by the outcome of the game but more by the performance of her team on the field.

“I’m a bit emotional but not disappointed,” she said. “It’s been amazing so far. We’re super happy and super proud. They’ve made history. They’re fighters. We’re supporting them till the end, no matter what.”

Shaima, who was born in France, experienced a victory that was a bittersweet win.

“My parents are from Morocco so I was supporting Morocco tonight. They did something great. They showed the world that a team from Africa can really achieve something great.”

Morocco’s run in this World Cup has been nothing less than extraordinary, and football fans around the world have fallen in love with the team and its wonderful performances.
