World Cup 2022 LIVE: Canada vs Morocco latest score, goals and updates after Nayef Aguerd own-goal

‘Why not an African World Cup champion?’ Regragui aims to blaze trail with Morocco

Morocco are in pole position to make it into the World Cup 2022 last-16 as they take on Canada in a decisive game in Group F this afternoon.

The Atlas Lions claimed a first World Cup victory since 1998 when they defeated Belgium last time out and another win today would secure them a spot in the knockout rounds.

Walid Regragui’s team haven’t made it out of the group stages since 1986 and it will be a huge success if they can get over the line today.

Canada are already out, exiting after two defeats in two despite plenty of exciting moments, but they won’t make things easy for Morocco.

Canada 1-2 Morocco

45+3 mins: It looks like En-Nesyri has scored his second to put Morocco 3-1 up!

He’s away celebrating – but it’s been disallowed for offside! A Moroccan player was standing offside in the way of Borjan’s eyeline as the striker volleyed home.

Been a stormer of a half this! Will we have any late drama?

Canada 1-2 Morocco

44 mins: Vitoria once again wins the header with El-Nesyri in the air but the Moroccan striker clatters into the Canada defender.

Looks all OK to continue though.

Canada 1-2 Morocco

40 mins: Canada pull a goal back!

It’s their second goal of the tournament – and it’s an own-goal! Morocco defender Nayef Aguerd gets a toe at the front post on Sam Adekugbe’s cross and diverts the ball past Yassine Bounou who can’t keep it out!

Morocco’s passage to the last-16 is not safe yet!

Canada 0-2 Morocco

32 mins: Big block from Canada to prevent a third Moroccan goal!

Boufal was running on to the loose ball in the box but Jamieson does well to block with his foot!

The Al Thumama Stadium absolutely bouncing after a dream first half-an-hour for Morocco!

Canada 0-2 Morocco

27 mins: Canada’s Jonathan Osorio in the book for a lunge on Abdelhamid Sabiri.

Right decision. Not so much nasty as just a bad tackle.

Canada looking fairly bright since going two down…

Canada 0-2 Morocco (En-Nesyri 23’)

23 mins: Morocco double their lead!

It’s a brilliant goal this! Achraf Hakimi – from right back – plays a delightful through ball to Youssef En-Nesyri who finishes with aplomb at the near post!

Could Borjan do better? Perhaps. Either way Morocco heading through – and at the moment top of the group!
