The arrival of the Moroccan national team to the semi-finals was not the only achievement it achieved in the World Cup in Qatar, but rather it is the only team in history that pushes 3 national team coaches to resign or dismiss because of its victory over them.

The "Atlas Lions" team is on its way to the golden square and its fourth place in the Qatar World Cup, dropping many large European teams. Group Six, which it issued, included Belgium, Canada and Croatia.

He tied with Croatia, defeated Canada and Belgium, and did not lose any match in the group stage, and accompanied Luka Modric's companions to the final price, so Belgium exited the tournament early and Spanish coach Roberto Martinez resigned with it, and he was the first victim of Morocco.

The next coach on the list of Morocco's victims was Spain, Luis Enrique, the coach of the "La Roja" team, who was sacked after being eliminated from the final price of the tournament by Morocco by penalty kicks after the end of the original and extra time with a goalless draw.

Morocco's last victim in the World Cup was a Portuguese coach this time, Fernando Santos, coach of his country, who was eliminated from the quarter-finals with a clean goal scored by Youssef Al-Nusairi.

These three coaches are part of a long list that included 8 coaches who were dismissed or resigned from coaching national teams after their exclusion from the Qatar World Cup, and they are:

  • Brazilian Tite resigned after his country's exit from the World Cup quarter-finals at the hands of Croatia on penalties.

  • Dutchman Louis van Gaal resigned after Argentina eliminated his country from the quarter-finals on penalties.

  • Argentine Gerardo Martino ended his career with the Mexico national team after being eliminated in the group stage.

  • Portuguese Paulo Bento left his post as coach of South Korea after losing 1-4 to Brazil in the final price.

  • Ghanaian Otto Addo resigned from coaching his country after bidding farewell to the World Cup in the group stage.
