Walid Regragui: ‘Morocco happy to settle for Croatia draw’

Morocco boss Walid Regragui says that he was more than happy to settle for a goalless draw with Croatia in their World Cup opener on Wednesday.

Walid Regragui has revealed that Morocco‘s main focus against Croatia on Wednesday was to ensure that they ‘lived for another day’.

Having been drawn alongside the 2018 runners-up and highly-fancied Belgium in Group F, Morocco are only regarded as outsiders to reach the knockout stages.

However, the Atlas Lions more than matched their more illustrious opponents at the Al Fayt Stadium, deserving claiming a share of the spoils from a goalless draw.

Although Croatia can claim to have had more openings in the final third, Zlatko Dalic‘s side did not do enough to earn maximum points in Al Rayyan.

The Checkered Ones’ coach admitted as much after the match, criticising his players for not showing enough courage in the final third.

In sharp contrast, Regragui was delighted with the point, feeling that his team can now focus on trying to collect three points against fellow group outsiders Canada.
