Morocco And Croatia Tied 0-0 In Group F
Morocco and Croatia began their Qatar 2022 campaigns with a 0-0 draw at Al Bayt Stadium. There were far too few thrills, spills, and goals.
A close and evenly matched encounter saw little chances, with Yassine Bono making the lone notable save to thwart Nikola Vlasic’s shot late in the first half.
