All Chelsea star Mateo Kovacic vs Morocco contributions as they eliminated Ziyech team.
Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic played against each other for the second time at the World Cup. This was because Croatia and Morocco had to finish up the formalities before Sunday’s final. Belgium and Canada were the other two teams in Group F, so the two teams were also put in the same group.
As things turned out, Morocco made an unlikely but historic run to the semi-finals after finishing second in their group. They went on to beat Spain and Portugal, making them the tournament’s biggest underdog. However, a skilled France team beat them on their way to back-to-back finals, making them the tournament’s biggest underdog again.
Croatia was trying to make it to the finals for the second time in a row, but they couldn’t get past Lionel Messi’s great play in Qatar and were knocked out by Argentina in the last four. But they also made headlines when they beat Japan on penalties and then knocked out favorites Brazil on penalties.
