The matchup between Croatia and the Atlas Lions in Group F’s opening match will be a good indicator of how they could do overall. Croatia lost the first game in three of their five World Cup visits, and each time they did, they got eliminated from the tournament. Every time Croatia won their opening match, they progressed to the semifinals. After winning their own qualification tournament with ease, Morocco would feel able to cause some difficulty.
In the second round in the Confederation for African Football (CAF) division, they won every game they played while scoring 20 goals and allowing only one. They then defeated the Democratic Republic of Congo 5-2 in the third and last qualifying round to advance as the lone team.

Bounou, Mazraoui, Hakimi, Amrabat, Saiss, Aguero, Ziyech, Amallah, Ounahi, En-Nesyri, and Boufal Sporting contests between Morocco and nations like South Africa, Chile, and Georgia were victories for Morocco. The 22nd-ranked squad in the FIFA World Rankings tied 0-0 with Paraguay in September. The team’s head coach, WalidRegragui, will be pleased with where his team is going. A few changes are likely with SofyanAmrabat expected to be reinstated to the midfield. Three months after VahidHalilhodzic was replaced as Morocco’s head coach by WalidRegragui, he selected Chelsea player Hakim Ziyech again for the national squad.
Livakovic, Lovren, Perisic, Kovacic, Modric, Kramaric, Brozovic, Vlasic, Gvardiol, Sosa, and Juranovic When Croatia plays Morocco in the opening match of the 2022 World Cup, midfielder Luka Modric would be looking to add a new page to Croatia’s World Cup legacy. As the top player in Russia, Modric received the Golden Ball trophy. Mateo Kovacic of Chelsea, who recently dealt with a knee issue, has now qualified, so Croatia doesn’t need to worry about any new injuries.
Line-up of players
Regardless of the fact that Ziyech&AchrafHakimi will likely receive the most of attention, Youssef En-Nesyri would be largely responsible for scoring goals for Morocco. While Luka Modri, a seasoned midfielder, is expected to play a significant role for Croatia, Marcelo Brozovi, one of Europe’s top deep-lying playmakers over the previous four years, is also expected to play a significant role.
