Morocco became the first African team to advance to the semifinals of a World Cup with a 1-0 win over Portugal on Saturday morning.
The winning goal came in the final minutes of the first half when Youssef En-Nesyri skied to win a header from a towering cross by Yahya Attiat-Allah. Portugal keeper Diogo Costa tried to beat En-Nesyri to the cross but En-Nesyri out jumped everyone and thumped the ball into the back of the net.
