The Atlas Lions - The National Soccer (football) Team of Morocco

The Morocco national football team (Arabic: منتخب المغرب لكرة القدم‎), nicknamed أسود الأطلس (Lions of the Atlas), is the national team of Morocco and is controlled by the Fédération Royale Marocaine de Football. They were the first African team to win a group at the World Cup, which they did in 1986, finishing ahead of Portugal, Poland, and England. They were also the first African team to make it to second round barely losing to eventual runner-ups West Germany 1-0 in 1986. They also came within two minutes of moving out of the group stage of the the 1998 World Cup, Kjetil Rekdal's late winning goal for Norway against Brazil eliminating them.
