On Sunday at noon, Belgium and Morocco will square off in their second group match. After witnessing Belgium eke out a 1-0 victory over the tenacious Canucks, Roberto Martinez stated: “Canada was better than us,” The Red Devils will take against another well-prepared team eager to pull off an upset in Morocco.
After a tense 0-0 draw, Croatia’s coach, Zlatko Dalic, praised the North American team for being “very well prepared and courageous.” Walid Regragui took great pride in how his team “performed like a European team” and is targeting the top-ranked country on the continent this weekend.

Romelu Lukaku, the Inter striker, has resumed individual training and, based on his manager’s assessment, could be ready for the final group match against Croatia. “If I go by how the player feels, there possibly is a chance to bring him back for the second match against Morocco,” Martinez continued.
An hour into Morocco’s scoreless draw with Croatia, Noussair Mazraoui was stretchered off after landing hard on his hip. Initial assessments indicate the damage may not be as bad as first thought, but it’s unlikely he will fully recover by Sunday which will be a major setback for the Moroccans.
