The Moroccan national team is looking for revenge, absent for 28 years, against Belgium in the World Cup

Armed with its high fighting spirit and its quest to continue to shine in front of the adults, the Moroccan national team is facing a new challenge in the FIFA World Cup, which is currently being held in Qatar, when it faces Belgium on Sunday.

The Moroccan national team hopes to recover from its 1-0 loss to its Belgian counterpart in the 1994 World Cup in the United States of America, in the only confrontation that took place between them in the World Cup.

The Moroccan national team, which is participating in the World Cup for the sixth time in its history and the second in a row, will play with the Belgium national team at (Al-Thumama) stadium in the second round of the sixth group matches of the group stage of the World Cup.

The Moroccan national team shares second place in the group standings table with the Croatian national team, with one point, after they tied without goals in the first round, as they are two points behind the Belgian team (leaders), who won 1-0 over Canada, in the opening round of the group.

The Moroccan national team is looking for its third victory in its career in the World Cup finals, which began with the Mexico version in 1970, despite the difficulty of its task against the team nicknamed (the Red Devils).

During its 17 World Cup matches so far, the Moroccan national team has achieved two wins against 6 draws and 9 defeats, and the interesting thing is that these two victories came at the expense of two European teams, to try again to find a new victim from the old continent.

Morocco's first victory in the World Cup came in 1986 in Mexico, when it beat Portugal 3/1, before waiting 12 years to achieve its second victory in the World Cup, when it beat Scotland 3/0 in the 1998 edition in France.
