A strong and fast paced game featuring Morocco's silver-quick Moustafa el-Hadji.

Always disciplined Norway was able to answer Morocco's scores quickly, pressing a unfortunate header by Youssef Chippo into his net.

Moroccan goalie Driss Benzekri very weak coming out to challenge attackers, making every play high on the air an adventure and shaving years off his coach Henri Michel's life span.
