These Moroccans are astonishing.

They are excellent and seem to impress forcibly through unexpectedness.

Just imagine the team no one reckons with defeated Belgium, sent Spain packing and now did the unthinkable in the quarter finals: conquered Portugal to advance to the semifinals.

All the teams they defeated are ranked in the first 10.

Belgium ranked second, Spain seventh and Portugal ninth while Morocco is ranked 22nd in world football. 

In short, the game of football is not about names, stars and expatriate coaches.

What is required are commitment, grit, skills, strength and patriotic zeal which Moroccan players have exhibited and continued to exhibit in this tournament.
