Morocco have caused the latest shock in a World Cup that has been full of surprises by beating Belgium thanks to late goals from Abdelhamid Sabiri and Zakaria Aboukhlal.

Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was at fault for the first goal, inexplicably allowing Sabiri’s free-kick to beat him at his near post with 17 minutes remaining.

But the entire Belgium side paid the price for a heavy-handed performance, with Morocco capping a superb second-half display when Aboukhlal fired Hakim Ziyech’s cut-back into the roof of the net in stoppage time.

This sparked wild celebrations in the stands at Al Thumama Stadium from thousands of Morocco fans, who had created a raucous atmosphere from the start.

The result means Morocco move above Belgium at the top of Group F with four points, with Croatia and Canada meeting later on Sunday (16:00 GMT).
