Who are the players to watch in Morocco vs. Portugal?

Cristiano Ronaldo has been the biggest name on the Portugal roster but a young 21-year-old center forward named Goncalo Ramos has taken center stage. Ramos completed the first hat trick in this year’s FIFA World Cup when he scored three goals for Portugal to help eliminate Switzerland from contention. 

For Morocco, Yassine Bounou – spelled Bono on his jersey – has been a key defensive player for his nation. The Atlas Lions have reached the last eight of a World Cup for the first time in their history and it’s mostly because of the Moroccan goalkeeper. 

Alongside Bounou is Romain Saiss, who has also been a key player for Morocco. Saiss has produced sensational performances at center-back across his four games in Qatar.

Who will the winner of the Morocco-Portugal match play in the semifinals?

The winner of Morocco-Portugal will face the winner of England-France on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. ET. 

Portugal and France have a known rivalry called the Battle of the Vineyards. The two nations have met 28 times but only once in the World Cup, which was in 2006 with France taking the 1-0 victory. Morocco, on the other hand, has played only one World Cup match against England and has never played against France.
