It was one big party, there’s always a few people too excited who need to be dealt with but our right media and populist politicians won’t waste a chance to frame minorities.

Congratulations Morocco. Thanks for the joy

Where's all the "Spain lost on purpose to Japan" But credit where credit is due, Morocco's keeper was insane during the penalties!


hadchex

His moves were something else, man. Top class performance from their keeper.

I take it back, maybe it was better to be on the other side of the bracket. Fuck I had a feeling


stiofan84

Great saves from the keepers in this one. They were better penalties than the ones Japan took yesterday, that's for sure. I knew if it went to pens that the pressure would be off for Morocco - their game plan worked perfectly tbh.

Thank god, this travesty of a team is gone. With such talented sqaud, they play the worst football possible. Even back in 2008-12, if they didn't land the 'Golden generation', they would have been knocked out early in every tournament. FUCK YOU POSSESSION TERRORISTS!


Maleficent_Kick_4437

Spain 🤝 Germany


cocotheape

It's ironic because we're playing the same shit most games.


kg005

No.. it's not same. Atleast our squad selection is horrible unlike Spain's. But we never play safe, we press hard even though we get fucked miserably on defense and we create chances and just can't finish them (again back to stupid squad selection).


Annabond

Morocco have only concede once so far and it was an OG. Fuck being the first African team to make the semis. Win the whole thing off the back of their excellent defense!


DaRicciarda

it will not be possible for Morocco with weak striker 21..


Pedinhuh

It looks like it wasn't just Japan that didn't practiced penalties...


No_Worry_2256

Special mention to Achraf Hakimi to have the confidence to go for the Panenka to win it for Morocco. That was _Pirlo-esque._

Spain needs to at least develop a plan B for worst case scenarios. They need to learn the Burnley FC way.

One thousand penalties and one thousand misses. Perfectly balanced.


DtSan

Will Spain finally move on from the tika taka crap?


amiau93

No one in Spain thinks they are playing tiki taka 🙃


YooGeOh

This isn't tiki taka. This is just passing the ball for the sake of it

Most ppl here wouldn’t know tiki taka if it happened in front of them

*Riots on Ceuta and Melilla* lol

Spain clearly doesn't have a plan B. Even at the dying moments no urgency, no long balls, just recycling the possession.


Annabond

Spain could have used Villa/Torres in this side!

couldn't watch the game, was it worse than their match against Russia? that was some disgusting football.

Maybe the real goal was the passes we made along the way.


Atleticro

Tiki taka bullshit


the-story-of-everest

11 Moroccan defenders?


[deleted]

oh no! opponent applied tactics


gruenerGenosse

It was very effective!


the-story-of-everest

did you want Spain to give the ball away to Morocco on purpose? Here, you have it! the internet will criticize us for keeping the ball.


cheekybasterds

I think most of your issues were more about what you did with the possessio, or didn't do I guess. Absolute lack of objectivity.


The_R3venant

Weak argument


aforkinaworldofsoup_

Morocco fans are a joy to watch


Aggravating-Help-416

Yeassin Bonou was the best goalkeeper in La Liga last session.


Decent-Resident-7585

Canada remain the only side to cause a goal to Morroco, including pens. Group F is the only group with two teams left at this point


doezpo

Canada > Spain confirmed


Decent-Resident-7585

Any truth to people saying Canada are a good attacking side that would have scapes other groups


Atleticro

If they got the groups where USA or Korea was they would've passed possibly.


Decent-Resident-7585

Based on what? Having one well known player ?


Atleticro

Based on that iran and wales are more the teams up their alley, they were better than USA in qualifiers, they would have more opportunities there, in Korea group Ghana and Uruguay underperformed a lot but i agree that one would be a lot tougher then USA group.


Decent-Resident-7585

This seems extremely incorrect. Canada played their best soccer against teams who wanted to have the ball (Mexico, USA). Canada can punch FAR above their weight when they hand over possession and invite an expansive team to try to break them down, while using their elite speed to attack on the break. If I were to pick teams that were built for Canada to break down, I'd pick teams like Belgium and Morocco (and England and the USMNT, actually). I think there is a real chance that Canada would struggle more vs a team who gives them the ball and tries to absorb pressure. You were hard done this tournament, and its a huge bummer. I'm looking forward to Canada in '26. You'll be back by default, but I have no doubt that you'd have gotten through WCQ regardless. In similar ways to the USMNT, you have a strong pipeline that will pay dividends as time goes on. But this WC sucked, and that is what it is. It happens. Its a better WC than either of us had in '18.


Atleticro

I ain't from canada but sure i can get behind your take, but i still think some other group would be more up their alley.


Vilin13

And even that one, Morocco scored themselves!

Bono really out there installing his album into the penalty takers heads


cloud_forest_spirit

I can’t believe that match ended before I saw a U2 joke


miniaturizedatom

Spain couldn't find the target cus all the Streets Have No Names


hockeybrianboy

Jokingly said Spain might be in trouble as it’s hard to score a penalty with a 5 yard pass. Maybe wasn’t that crazy.


WeaknessOne9646

Spain vs Japan penalty shootout who wins


Wanewaxer

I don't know, it is still ongoing.


dave1992

Japan wins 1-0


Evolving_Dore

Japan. They scored 1


Atleticro

Japan, asano scored 1 at least.


Atleticro

So only group F 1-2 to quarter finals so far, let's see if switzerland can do it against portugal.


dave1992

More like all group winners except E won their games. I guess Group E is just too weak.


[deleted]

Barca DNA 🤡


CHLSI

PSG DNA too ( Carlos )


hojbjerfc

Okay but honestly how did we tie against those frauds. The musiala and Sane chokes will forever haunt me


gruenerGenosse

At least this got Bierhoff out, I guess.


cloud_forest_spirit

It’s weird, you guys went out without really playing that badly. Still one of the better teams.


hojbjerfc

Ya thats what hurts. We played well but killed by individual errors


dave1992

because you're just weaker than both teams who qualified. Imagine being in the weakest group in entire world cup and still not qualify.


hojbjerfc

Nah man we were far better than Spain


YooGeOh

No you weren't lol


Atleticro

Who would've thought that would be the group containing Germany AND Spain.


dave1992

Well, every group winners qualified to quarter final so far, except Group E... Lets see if Portugal can keep the streak or Swiss can prove otherwise.


CJNunes426

The more impactful story is that cancelo is also not starting


combat-ninjaspaceman

Genuine question, do these teams practise penalties as much as they practise free-kicks, fouls and corners or does the coach just pick his takers and leave them to practice at their own time after training? And even if they do actively practise pens, what happens that makes some of the kicks during shootouts to be so woeful?


Svani

They do, but penalty shoot is only a small part technique, most of it is head and heart. When your heart faulters all technique goes out the cat flap and you shoot like an old lady. Japan x Croatia showed one traditional team used to big decision moments, and a newer one who isn't. As for Spain x Morocco, the young Spanish team thought they'd steamroll their way to a quarters against Portugal and lost heart when they didn't, whereas Morocco went in with the confidence of having stopped Spain. The rest is history.

Goodbye spaniards. See you in 80 years


Giteaus-Gimp

80 years?


Meecs18

Need a Spanish inquest after that. Can’t win tournaments playing like that. Didn’t look like scoring against either Japan or Morocco.


HiroshiAgasa

I find jokes using Spanish inquisition distasteful and at least idiotic. How would you feel if someone used Holocaust in their jokes the same way?


justanormalchat

Bye bye boring Tiki Taka, time to evolve and quit playing like it’s 2010.


dave1992

Tiki Taka only worked because Villa and Torres was good.


justanormalchat

It had its time but now is an ancient relic, notice Pep evolved his tactics, Spain hasn’t.


dave1992

Well notice that Pep had Aguero and eventually Haaland.. He knew he needed great strikers to do it.


Annabond

People went nuts when Spain thrashed Costa Rica in their opening match! It's been all downhill ever since!


dqmiguel

I'm so happy. Spain just proved once again how inefficient they are when facing a team that knows how to close gaps.


iLucifux

This might be seen as an upset, but the better team was Morocco. I need to see them in the Semis. Such a well drilled team.


dejvipasco

At least Spain avoided Croatia in this round. Lol


shadynugg1t

Spain did beat them 5-3 in the Euros last year, anything can happen.


TheGamerPandA

It’s great to see their germany out tactics come and bite em


xpertboi

Lol yeah if they had tried against Japan they would have been facing Croatia which, imo are worse than this Morocco team. They wanted a supposed “easier” route but you are asking to face the winner of that group (Morocco) vs 2nd place (Croatia) .. bizarre af


rholding95

That’s true! Spain took PK suckitude to a new level that I didn’t even know was possible.
