Last time out, Morocco clinched the Group F win with 2-1 victory over Canada. The Moroccans needed a result in this game, and they wasted no time as they jumped all over a Canada team that was already eliminated.
Hakim Ziyech got the party started early on as he put Morocco up 1-0 in just the fourth minute. Youssef En Nesyri made it 2-0 with a strike into the bottom right corner just 23 minutes into the game. Canada got one back with an own goal by Morocco in the 40th minute, but that was the end of the goal action in this one.
A fantastic group stage showing by Morocco.
Spain ended up with a second-place finish in Group E with a surprising 2-1 loss against Japan. The Spanish team may have been playing for second place in the group as they sat some key pieces and ended up with a much better path in the knockout stages.
Spain got on the board first thanks to an Alvaro Morata header in the 11th minute. Japan did not put their head down and they came roaring back early in the second half. Ritsu Doan tied the game up with a beauty of a goal in the 48th minute and just three minutes later Ao Tanka tapped the ball in to give the Samurai Blue the win.
This Spanish team could still be dangerous in the knockout stages.
