The Atlas Lions of Morocco made history in Qatar on Saturday defeating Portugal and advancing to the World Cup semifinals, becoming the first African country to do so in the history of the championship.

Portugal were favored to defeat Morocco in the quarterfinal match with a FIFA ranking 9 vs. 22, but the Moroccan squad known as “Atlas Lions” delivered a historic victory of 1-0. Youssef En-Nesyri scored the winning goal.

Portugal’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo missed the first half, but couldn’t deliver a win for his national team in the second. This is believed to be his last World Cup.
