Morocco beat Colombia to reach World Cup last 16


Morocco's midfielder #16 Anissa Lahmari (2nd R) fights for the ball with Colombia's defender #03 Daniela Arias (L), Colombia's midfielder #06 Daniela Montoya (2n L), and Colombia's midfielder #05 Lorena Bedoya during the Australia and New Zealand 2023 Women's World Cup Group H football match between Morocco and Colombia at Perth Rectangular Stadium in Perth on August 3, 2023.

Morocco have reached the last 16 on their Women’s World Cup debut after beating Colombia – although the South Americans progress as Group H winners.

Germany’s failure to beat South Korea means Morocco are into the knockout rounds as runners-up.

Anissa Lahmari scored the only goal via a rebound after captain Ghizlane Chebbak’s penalty was saved.

Morocco – who lost 6-0 to the Germans in their opener before successive wins – will face France in Adelaide next.

Colombia, who earned two wins in their first two matches and finish above Morocco on goal difference, will play Jamaica in Melbourne earlier on 8 August.
