*Africa’s Most Memorable World Cup Moments*

5. Morocco 3-1 Portugal (1986)

Morocco’s first victory, in only their second appearance at the global high table, came in 1986 when they made it to the last 16.

This was the pinnacle achievement for an excellent Atlas Lions side that included Maghrebi luminaries such as Badou Zaki, Aziz Bouderbala and Abdelmajid Dolmy.

They topped a group containing England and Poland before unfortunately running up against finalists West Germany in the second round, losing to a late Lothar Matthaus goal.

Their finest hour game in their group game against Portugal; goals from Abderrazak Khairi and Krimau gave the North Africans a 3-1 victory over the Selecao.
