Odion Ighalo has predicted a tough outing for Morocco when they face Portugal at the Al Thumama stadium, Today.
A victory for Morocco, means the Atlas Lions will become the first African team to reach the last four of the FIFA World Cup.
The Atlas Lions at the tournament, have proven they can compete at the highest level, recording victories against Belgium, Canada and Spain, with a draw coming against 2018 semi-finalist, Croatia.
Between them and Portugal, they’ve met twice at the World Cup; 1986 and Morocco defeated Portugal 3-1 while at the 2018 edition in Russia the former European champions won by a single goal.
“Against Portugal (in the last eight) it’s going to be tough but in football, anything can happen,” Ighalo told The Athletic.
“Names don’t play football — if you work hard and give everything on the field you have every chance to get through, so one mistake could cost any team. So I wish
“Morocco all the best, but as an African I hope the best side wins,” He concluded.
