2022 FIFA World Cup Morocco vs Croatia: Where To Watch, Live Streaming, Date, Timing, Squad, Lineups, Venue:

Morocco were back at the world stage in 2018 after missing out for 16 years, and for the first time since 1994-1998, the African nation have qualified for back-to-back FIFA World Cup finals. Although they are yet to make it past the group stage since their Round of 16 appearance at the 1986 edition, Morocco do have a squad which can change that narrative. PSG’s Achraf Hakimi, Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech, Bayern Munich’s Noussair Mazraoui, Barcelona’s Ez Abde are leading the nation into a golden period, where they can dream of punching above their weight.

However, a difficult Group F awaits them at this 2022 FIFA World Cup, drawn against the likes of Croatia, Belgium, who boast massive World Cup experience, and Canada who are desperate to announce themselves to the world. But the African side has nothing to lose, and thus will try and thrive on this very fact against the big guns in the group.

Runners-up from 2018, Croatia would like to kick-start their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign in Qatar against Morocco with win. Luka Modric is potentially playing in his last ever World Cup, and will surely want to have one more go at the coveted trophy he came close to winning in Russia. He once again has a squad which is well capable of pulling off something like they did in 2018. The Croats boast a squad with a mix of experience as well as some new, young faces for this edition.

Moreover, Croatia’s build up to the World Cup through their UEFA Nations League campaign was a scintillating one. Drawn in League A’s Group 1 alongside France, Denmark and Australia, they topped the lot, inflicting a loss and a stalemate on the reigning world champions, registering two wins over Denmark and a defeat and a win against Austria. Zlatko Dalic’s team displayed through this, they haven’t lost the touch of form from their 2018 World Cup run-up to the finals.
