Morocco defeated Brazil 2-1 in a friendly match at Tangiers on Saturday.
Morocco took the lead with Sofiane Boufal, but Brazil’s Casemiro equalized in the 67th minute.
Brazil’s destiny was sealed in the 79th minute when Abdelhamid Sabiri scored their first-ever victory over the five-time world champions.
Brazil’s interim coach, Ramon Menezes, did not attend the post-match press conference, although Morocco’s Head Coach was pleased with the outcome.
“You know it means a lot for us to beat Brazil, the top team in the FIFA ranking, and the country of football. This is the mon the of Ramadan, we have to go and pray Tarawih to confirm if it’s true or not. Now we are going to celebrate but it’s a long way to go. We must not get on fire – when I say we must win the African Cup, they say that I am exaggerating. I must be careful when I say that we are not going to play for win but we only play for happiness”, said Morocco’s Head Coach, Walid Regragui.
The next match for Morocco will be against Peru on Tuesday.
