Morocco Player Doesn’t Realize She Sent Her Country To Its First Major Final After Miscounting Penalties
A Rosella Ayane penalty kick will live long in the history of Morocco women’s soccer as it was the shot that sent the team to its first ever major tournament final. On Monday Morocco defeated 11-time Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (WAFCON) champs Nigeria on penalties in the semifinal.
Morocco is hosting the tournament for the first time in its history and is going on a historic run. The underdogs already secured 2023 World Cup qualification, which will be the team's first ever World Cup, by making it to the semifinals. Now Morocco has its eyes on winning the whole thing.
