Even though Spain is supposed to be one of the strongest candidates to take home the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, they could still be surprised by Morocco.
Spain did not have much trouble qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Despite some initial doubts about the 26-man squad, it wasn’t long before they showed their talent with a 7-0 thrashing of Costa Rica.
But Luis Enrique’s side took their foot off the gas in the next two games. They drew 1-1 with Germany and then failed to beat a desperate Japan side who needed a 2-1 win to book their place in this round.
As such, some believe they could be in serious trouble against Morocco, a surprising team that has exceeded expectations and whose historical and political background with Spain gives this match much more significance.
Qatar 2022: What Happens If Spain Loses To Morocco?
We cannot ignore the fact that this rebellious and talented Morocco team qualified as the first seed in their group. Spain, on the other hand, was far from the steamroller it looked like at times in the final match of the group stage.
So, if Spain isn’t at its best and loses to Morocco, they’ll be sent back home and eliminated from the competition. Morocco, on the other hand, would then advance to the quarterfinals to face the winner of the match between Portugal and Switzerland.
