“The impossible is not Moroccan… The impossible is not Arab…The Atlas Lions’ victory is a source of joy and pride for all Arabs,” so expressed Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, his and all Arabs’ euphoria over the historic win notched by Morocco over Spain in Qatar 2022.

It’s safe to say that Morocco now pose a threat to any European or American World Cup hopes after excellent group stage and last 16 performances. The Atlas Lions’ balanced tactics saw them progress from the group stage to the last 16 to the quarter-finals after defeating Belgium, Canada and Spain, scoring four goals in the process and becoming the first Arab national team to top their Group in the World Cup before reaching the best 8.

Having dumped Spain out on penalties to reach historic World Cup quarters, the Moroccan proved how they excellently rely on the well-rounded approach of head coach Walid Regragui, whose clever strategies have been essential to the team’s success in playing to its advantages.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council also hailed Morocco for its historic victory over the Spanish. “The Atlas Lions deserve congratulations. Best wishes to Morocco. You’ve brought joy to all the Arabs with your valiant effort and well-earned victory,” Sheikh Hamdan wrote in a tweet.

The now-running Portugal-Switzerland clash, where the Portuguese are exhibiting an overwhelming performance, pits the Atlas Lions against one of Europe’s most ambitious teams at a much-awaited Euro-Arab quarter-final clash. However, all hopes are pinned on the Lions to create a new history that will live on in every Arab’s memories.
