Morocco only need a draw against Canada in the last group game to reach the last 16. 

It would only be the second time in Moroccan history that they have reached the knockout stages of the World Cup. The last time they reached the knockout stage was in 1986. 

Waldo Regragui will be looking to continue his six-match unbeaten run as Morocco manager, a run which has seen his side keep clean sheets in every game.

If Morocco keep a clean sheet in this match they will be the first African side not to concede a goal in the first three matches at a World Cup. 

Regragui told Planet Sport ‘’we are motivated and planning for a difficult game.’’ They face a Canada side who have lost their opening two games and are already eliminated from the tournament. 

Canada have played five World Cup games in their history and have lost all of them. However, manager John Herdman told Planet Sport ‘’tomorrow is a real opportunity for our players, four our county, to keep stepping forward.’’

Regragui will be sweating on the fitness of Achraf Hakimi who came off after 42 minutes against Belgium. However, he is set to have left-back Noussair Mazraoui who has overcome the injury he suffered in the opening game against Croatia.
