Qatar World Cup - Players kneel and apologize to fans after Morocco defeat

Tickets for the World Cup final in Qatar are already in the cards, with France beating Morocco 2-0. Most of the Moroccan players and the coach knelt down to apologize to the fans after the game.

In this event, Agde of Morocco was temporarily replaced due to an injury during the warm-up. However, captain Seth was also dragged down by previous injuries and could not persist in leaving the game in the 21st minute. However, Morocco did not feel stage fright because of this, and it also tried its best to face the defending champion France .

Moroccan players attempted a total of 13 shots during the game, just one short of France. Although it seems that the strength of Morocco and France is not much different, the Moroccan players failed to seize the opportunity several times and were saved and cleared by the French players one by one.

When the outcome was determined, the Moroccan players felt regretful and disappointed. In fact, they had done a good job. Morocco was the first African team in history to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. Before the game, Morocco had a good record of 3 wins and 2 draws in the World Cup. It won consecutive wins against Spain and Portugal. This loss can be said to be a glorious defeat.

After the game, the Moroccan players felt that they had let down the expectations of the fans, and many players and the coach Regraghi knelt down to apologize to the fans. Regraghi said: "We have tried our best, and this is the most important thing! We lost this game, but it doesn't mean that our previous efforts can be erased."
