Azimio Leader Raila Odinga has hailed Morocco for a superb performance at the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar after thrashing Spain 3 goals to nil in penalty shootout.
Odinga termed Morocco as the only hope for Africa in the ongoing tournament.
‘‘Wow, Morocco’s Atlas Lions commendably gave their all in a thrilling encounter, carrying our continent’s hopes and dreams into the next round. Congratulations to them for their outstanding grit and teamwork. Great job!”
Morocco dumped Spain out of the World Cup in a last-16 penalty shootout on Tuesday with Spanish-born Achraf Hakimi scoring spot-kick after Spain squandered all three of their attempts, following a 0-0 draw over 120 minutes.
During the 90 minutes plus extra time, Spain dominated possession but failed to create many clear chances against Morocco’s stubborn defense.
