Bruno Fernandes has arguably been Portugal’s best performing player in the 2022 World Cup so far; Bruno’s contributions were important to coach Fernando Santos’ squad, and the Manchester United midfielder showed his creativity and ability to make good use of small spaces in attack.
Moreover, Fernandez contributed heavily to Portugal’s goals; Where he scored two goals and provided 3 assists in the World Cup Qatar so far, and monitoring his movements around the edge of the penalty area is absolutely necessary, hence the role of Moroccan star Sofiane Amrabat, who must be at the top of his focus, and on high defensive alert, if he intends to limit The danger of the Portuguese star.
During the past matches, the defensive intuition of Amrabat was wonderful, which helped the Moroccan defense to keep its net clean in 3 out of 4 matches played by the “Atlas Lions” in the Qatari World Cup so far, and we will see in the match between Morocco and Portugal whether Amrabat will succeed or not in stopping Dangerous Fernandez.
2- Hakim Ziyech x Rafael Guerrero
Hakim Ziyech proved that his return to the ranks of the Moroccan national team a few months before the World Cup in Qatar was necessary, after the overthrow of the Bosnian coach Wahid Halilhodzic, and Rakraki assuming technical responsibility for the team.

The Portugal player showed his quality in the past matches, scoring one goal and providing two assists, so Guerrero represents a trump card that must be watched by Ziyash when the “Atlas Lion” performs his defensive duty.
3- Roman Sayes X Goncalo Ramos
There is no doubt that Goncalo Ramos’ stunning performance in Portugal’s last match, scoring 3 goals in the 6-1 win over Switzerland, has given him the edge over Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting line-up for the Mariners.
One of the unique things about the Benfica forward is his impressive finishing ability, as he has proven he can score from anywhere in the final third, and enough space for him can be dangerous for Morocco.
Therefore, Moroccan defender Romain Sayes must be on high alert, if he intends to stop Ramos’ danger and prevent him from scoring in the match.

Cancelo is distinguished by good defensive capabilities, and his extensive participation in building the Portuguese game, and this appears in his being the owner of the most number of passes among the Portuguese players in the Qatar World Cup so far, with 215 passes, and the Manchester City player plays great offensive roles in the right front, and in all, It can be said that the confrontation of “Bofal to Cancelo” represents a bilateral duel that is worth watching in the upcoming Morocco-Portugal summit.
