FIFA world cup 2022 3rd place match highlight between Croatia and Morocco in Khalifa stadium
1st half- GOAL—-Croatia team have been the dominant of the two teams since kick-off and they have got the first goal of the match, and rightly so! Croatia gets a free-kick from just outside the box. Modric takes the free-kick and he just lobs the ball in the box. Once the ball is in the box, Mateo Kovacic heads the ball to Josko Gvardiol who then again uses head to guide the 1st time ball in the net.
The Moroccan team hit the goal just after Croatia and established a 1-1 score.
Croatia restored their lead! BRILLIANT GOAL! Croatia piles on the pressure on Morocco and keeps the ball in and around the Moroccon box. After a few quick changes of passes among the Croatian players, the ball landed at the feet of Mislav Orsic who then from a tight angle lifted the ball over Yassine Bounou to score Croatia’s second goal.
2nd half- croatia did not hit any goals. They carried the lead by 2-1 score against Morocco but both teams were strong.
Finally That is that! The referee blows the full-time whistle at the Khalifa Stadium. It ends with Croatia 2, Morocco 1. Four years after they finished as runner-up, Croatia claimed third place in the FIFA World Cup 2022. But be very proud of Morocco for what you have achieved in Qatar.
