“The coolest man in world football” – Piers Morgan, Kylian Mbappe and others react to Achraf Hakimi’s panenka knocking Spain out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup

It’s another shocker that Spain, one of the favorites at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, was pulled out of the tournament against Morocco, a much more exhausted side on paper. The African side went to the qualifying rounds as the group leader, beating teams like Belgium and Denmark, but no one expected them to beat Luis Enrique’s side in this round of 16.

Morocco had significantly fewer balls and never bothered Spanish goalkeeper Unai Simon during the rule period. The Spanish attackers did not find the gaps between the Moroccan defenders and did not create enough chances to score, and the match was very tightly balanced and neither team opened their accounts so that the fate of the game would be determined by penalties.

The hero of the match was Morocco’s goalkeeper Yassine Bounnou, who for the first time in its history saved three penalties in a row to take his side to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup. It was a great moment for the players and fans alike, and Morocco will face Portugal in the semi-finals on Saturday.
