 Shadowboxing: Morocco striker set an anti-record for the 2022 World Cup

The semi-final of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar between the national teams of Morocco and France ended with a score of 2:0 in favor of the French. Despite this, the Moroccans owned the ball 62% of the playing time, the French – 38%.

For En-Nesiri, such an advantage in the game did not help. The striker touched the ball only three times during the match.

Yusuf entered the match in the first team of Morocco. The 25-year-old striker spent 66 minutes on the field, after which he was replaced by Abderrazak Hamdallah. This is the minimum contact with the ball among football players in the World Cup since 1966.

In Qatar, Yusuf En-Nesiri played all 6 matches of Morocco, in which he scored twice.

By the way, he scored the only goal against Portugal in the World Cup quarter-finals, helping Morocco become the first African team to reach the World Cup 1/2.
