Morocco, Croatia goalless at halftime

Croatia's midfielder #13 Nikola Vlasic (L) shoots but fails to score as Morocco's defender #05 Nayef Aguerd (R) defends during the Qatar 2022 World Cup Group F football match between Morocco and Croatia at the Al-Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, north of Doha on 23 November 2022.

The first half of Wednesday's World Cup Group F match between Morocco and Croatia finished 0-0 at the Al Bayt Stadium after an intense opening period yielded few goalscoring opportunities for both teams.

Croatia threatened to break the deadlock in the closing minutes when Nikola Vlasic's effort was saved by the legs of Morocco goalkeeper Yassine Bounou and Luka Modric blasted over.
