Spain’s intense 2-2 draw against Morocco on Monday saw them qualify for the World Cup‘s knockout stages as group leaders.
Fernando Hierro‘s men will now face Russia in the round of 16 on July 1.
And while they might be among the favourites, they were made to work hard against the Atlas Lions.
Here we take a look at all the goals from their final Group B game.
A mix-up between Andres Iniesta and Sergio Ramos set Morocco striker Khalid Bouatib away in open space, and he didn’t miss the chance to put his team ahead – firing through the legs of David De Gea.
Spain replied almost instantly with Iniesta making a run into the Moroccan box and then cutting back a pass to Isco, who was at hand to provide a smart finish.
Youssef En Nesyri jumped highest during the corner in the 81st minute and headed in a goal that put Morocco in a position to seal an historic victory against Spain. It wasn’t meant to be though.
The injury-time goal was ruled out at first by the referee, due to offside, but later given after VAR was consulted – substitute Iago Aspas scoring audaciously with his heel.
The header challenge has become famous since Marcello’s son Enzo completed the challenge with the Real Madrid team in their dressing room back in May.
The Red Devils’ challenge is less impressive but you certainly wouldn’t know from the celebrations.
Belgium’s next match is the decider in Group G against England in Kaliningrad on Thursday night at 22:00 (UAE Time).
Essam El Hadary – who became the oldest man to play in World Cup – kept Egypt in the game after he saved an initial penalty given to the Saudis, athletically getting across to tip Fahad Al Muwallad’s spot kick onto the woodwork.
But Saudi found the equaliser just before half-time, thanks to Salman Al Faraj who this time scored from the penalty spot.
But a late surge from Saudi helped them find the goal that led to victory, and Al Dawsari celebrated scoring it with a back-flip.
Here, we take a look at all the goals from the game in animation.
A fantastic ball for Salah who was on the counter-attack led to Egypt’s first goal as the forward chipped one perfectly over Saudi goalkeeper Yasser Al Mosailem.
Saudi Arabia were awarded a second penalty after El Hadary had made a save previously. This time Al Faraj took the responsibility and made it 1-1 as the goalkeeper went the wrong way.
Their first World Cup win since 1994 didn’t come easy. Salem Al Dawsari fired in a close-range volley in the closing stages of the game and earned them a third place finish in Group A.
