Morroco bicycle kick: Jawad El Yamiq nearly scores on a bicycle kick for Morocco. It surely would have been the goal of the tournament but hits the post. And it was a full bicycle kick attempt. No hesitation from him in trying to score from a bicycle. He lays himself out and goes for it with the bike. This goes in and El Yamiq would have been such a hero in Morocco.

But with the majority of the fans at the stadium behind them, they surely won’t make it easy for France. The French players can barely hear themselves on the field what with all the whistles when they have the ball.
