Canada and Morocco will lock horns with each other in Group F at the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar. The match between the North American nation and the African country will be held at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time on Thursday.

Canada

Canada are out of the 2022 Qatar World Cup and have no chance of progressing to the knockout rounds whatsoever. They find themselves at the bottom of Group F at the moment with no point from two matches. Belgium in third have three points, while Croatia and Morocco have picked up four points each and are first and second respectively in the standings.

John Herdman’s side did kick off their 2022 Qatar World Cup campaign well. Canada narrowly lost 1-0 to Belgium in their opening Group F match at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan. However, they were hammered 4-1 by Croatia in their second match at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha.

Team News:

With Canada having nothing but just pride to play for, head coach John Herdman could make a few changes to his team for their World Cup match against Morocco. However, Jonathan David will start upfront, while Alphonso Davies should also keep his place in the team.

Morocco

Not many would have given Morocco a chance of qualifying for the Round of 16 of the 2022 Qatar World Cup from Group F. After all, Croatia and Belgium are the two clear best teams on paper in the group. And Canada have a very good, vibant and young team. However, heading into the final round of matches in the group stage, Morocco find themselves with the chance of actually winning Group F.

Walid Regragui’s side are second in Group F at the moment with four points from two matches, level on points with leaders Croatia. A win for Morocco against Canada will guarantee them a place in the Round of 16. Even a defeat will suffice as long as Croatia pick up all three points against Belgium. Morocco kicked off their 2022 Qatar World Cup campaign with a goalless draw with Croatia before registering a brilliant 2-0 victory over Belgium.

Team News:

Morocco are unlikely to make too many changes to the team that won against Belgium. Munir Mohamedi will remain his place between the sticks, while Nayef Aguerd and Romain Saïss will be two centre-backs. Hakim Ziyech, Youssef En-Nesyri and Sofiane Boufal will be the front three for the African nation.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Canada have scored 1 goal in 2 Qatar World Cup matches.
  • Canada have conceded 5 goals in 2 Qatar World Cup matches.
  • Morocco have scored 2 goals in 2 Qatar World Cup matches.
  • Morocco have yet to concede at the Qatar World Cup.

Conclusion

Canada are a good team, but they are nothing to play for in their final group match at the 2022 World Cup. Morocco is doing well at the moment, and their win against Belgium has raised the spirits and enhanced their confidence. It is very likely that Morocco will be able to win against Canada with ease.
