Morocco defeated Brazil in a historic friendly match

Morocco won for the first time in its history against Brazil (2-1) in a friendly match on Saturday March 25, in Tangier, continuing its good momentum after its brilliant World Cup in Qatar.

The Atlas Lions opened the scoring through Sofiane Boufal (29th) with a pivot shot on a decisive pass from young Bilal El Khannous, tenured for the second time in the national team.

Three minutes before, Vinícius Jr. had scored, but his goal was disallowed for offside, after a hazardous exit by Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.

Dominating against a messy Seleçao, Morocco regained the advantage ten minutes from the end thanks to a volley under the bar of Abdelhamid Sabiri.

It is the first time that Morocco has emerged victorious from a confrontation with Brazil after two defeats in 1997 (2-0) and a year later (3-0) in the group stage of the World Cup-98 in France.
