Morocco's Ambassador to Ghana, Her Excellency, Imane Quaadil has expressed her heart felt gratitude to the Atlas Lions of Morocco for their spirited performance at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Her Excellency, Imane Quaadil indicated her belief in the Moroccan side who have been amazing throughout their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign.
According to the ambassador, she is proud of how good they played as a team, even though they failed at the later part against France on Wednesday night.
"Our team played their hearts out, did their best and are at a place we couldn't believe they would be at. They played the champions of the world and couldn't succeed. We are still supporting, and we are proud of them."-she stated.
She further indicated that even though Morocco failed to book a place in the final, they will look to secure a third-place finish against 2018 runners up Croatia to make their campaign a memorable one.
"We already played against Croatia in the group stages, we know them and they know us, maybe we could fight for this one. They are amazing, they are a real team that has a spirit and didn't play for individual glory. We are very proud of them for where they've gotten to. They have done best, and we hope they do better in the next competition"-she added.
The Atlas Lions of Morocco fell to a 2-0 defeat to France on Wednesday evening in the last semi-final game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Morocco's valiant effort and one of the great World Cup stories ended in disappointment at the Al Bayt sports stadium.
It took Theo Hernandez just five minutes to open the scoring for Didier Deschamp's side.
Jawad El Yamiq came close to scoring an equalizer with a stunning overhead kick but was denied by Hugo Lloris.
Randal Kolo Muani sealed the victory for the reigning champions in the 79th minute as he connected on a pass from inside the box to slot home the second of the evening.
Morocco will take on Croatia on Saturday in the 3rd place game as France lock horns with Argentina in the finals for the ultimate trophy.
France became the first nation in more than two decades to qualify for consecutive finals. The last was Brazil, which actually made three straights, from 1994-2002.
