Twitter goes crazy as Portugal survive against Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 4th-minute thumping header helped Portugal survive against Morocco

Defending European Champions, Portugal managed to secure a  1-0 victory against Morocco, in their second game of Group B. Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal ahead in the 4th minute with a thumping header, and that proved to be the difference between these two sides.

With this victory, Portugal managed to keep their qualification hopes intact, while Morocco’s World Cup chances have ended. It was Moroccans who ran the show, dazzled the audience, but they were not so clinical in front of the goal, and the consequence was catastrophic.

Morocco defenders failed to mark Cristiano Ronaldo tightly and strictly in the 4th-minute and the Portuguese Skipper exploited it to give his team an early lead. The goal also saw Cristiano Ronaldo adding one more to his tally and making it 4 goals.

Morroco’s high-pressing football often forced the Portuguese players to commit unwanted flaws. They were dispossessed many times and had to ride their luck to get all those 3 points.

Here’s how the Twitter world reacted to the game:
