Many supporters believe the North Africans are capable of making history in Qatar by reaching the semi-finals and beyond

Fans in Africa feel Morocco are the team from the continent capable of making World Cup history by reaching the final in Qatar.

Morocco qualified to the Round of 16 as group winners from a pool which had 2018 finalists Croatia, and Belgium, third-place finishers four years ago, following a draw against the Croats and wins over the Red Devils and Canada.

The performance has impressed the supporters and they feel the North Africans have shown enough to prove that they can match any team at the tournament.

    Africa proving them wrong

    African victories. For everyone to see and naturally believe. Particularly for those who, in the first round, many of them disparaged the African teams. And from the second day to this, African teams started to restore fairness and reality. African teams are also good and can play good football and beat other world teams. - Jose Maria Carvalho Furtado
