The Moroccan team has been a defensive monster throughout the World Cup as they have only conceded one goal which also was an own goal. Their defence is led by captain Romain Saiss, along with Achraf Hakimi and Noussair Mazraoui on the flanks. On the attacking front forward Sofiane Boufal has looked extremely threatening along with the creative mastery of winger Hakim Ziyech.
