"Easier than Croatia" - Ziyech aims digs at Belgium after 2-0 victory

After a draw with Croatia, Ziyech led Morocco to a well-deserved 2-0 victory over Belgium in their Qatar 2022 campaign. The Chelsea winger insists it was a lot easier to face Belgium than Croatia.

Goals from Abdelhamid Sabiri and Abukhlal awarded Morocco

a shocking 2-0 victory

over the title-favorites Belgium, as the Belgians hardly had any chance on the Moroccans' goal.

The Man of the Match,

Hakim Ziyech

told in his post-match interview:

"The first game was more difficult for us. We couldn't play our game, Croatia played a very good game. This one was perhaps easier, especially in midfield. They may have made more mistakes than the Croats.

"We played a very strong, robust game, especially in defence. We were waiting for their mistakes and I think we took the lead from that and scored at the right time."

Ziyech added:

"I don't deserve this player of the match trophy. It's a collective effort, everyone was behind me, it's a collective work


Ziyech hailed

Morocco fans

for the victory, saying:

"After 60-70 minutes some were tired and when we scored that goal they rallied behind us. It gave us more power, more power. The crowd helped us, they were behind us and I think that really boosted us."
