Croatia, with the exception of Nikola Vlasic’s effort in the first half, did not pose any danger despite possessing the ball for a significant portion of the game.

Vlasic was stopped by Moroccan Yassine Bounou, who shortly before the half’s end produced an amazing save. Morocco started the second half with a similar tempo and pushed Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic to make a save. He stopped Noussair Mazraoui’s diving header with his head.

Livakovic also made a comfortable save after Achraf Hakimi teamed with Hakim Ziyech during a set piece and struck a straight shot at the Croatia goalpost.

Ziyech returned to the Moroccan team in September after being sidelined for more than a year owing to a disagreement with his former coach, Vahid Halilhodzic.
