Group A

10th June: vs. Norway (2:2) in Montpellier.

16th June: vs. Brazil (0:3) in Nantes.

23rd June: vs. Scotland (3:0) in St. Etienne.

We will remember Morocco for the skills of Hadji and his great goal against Norway. Their win against Scotland, in the last group match, was not enough to take them into the Second Round because of a dubious last minute penalty; given to Norway, against Brazil.

Morocco failed to qualify for the Second Round.
