Morocco secures first-ever win in FIFA Women’s World Cup™
The Moroccan Women's Football team secured their first-ever win, defeating South Korea in a Group H game with a thrilling 1-0 victory. The historic moment came as Ibtissam Jraidi's goal sealed the win at Hindmarsh Stadium, Adelaide, Australia. Proudly making history, Morocco becomes the first Arab team to win a match in the FIFA Women's World Cup.
Ibtissam Jraidi's crucial sixth-minute header secured Morocco's victory, while South Korea struggled to find the net. After a tough 6-0 loss to Germany in their previous match, Morocco faced slim chances of advancing to the last 16. As one of the lowest-ranked teams in the tournament, this win was vital for Morocco's World Cup journey, as South Korea faced the possibility of an early exit from Group H.
In addition to the historic win, the match featured another groundbreaking moment with Moroccan defender Nouhaila Benzina becoming the first hijabi woman to play at the FIFA Women's World Cup.
