Cafe space throughout the Fez Medina was at a premium for the world cup clash between Morocco and Iran. Patrons spilled out onto the pavement where hastily rigged televisions provided less than perfect viewing conditions.
For much of the match it seemed that Morocco's domination would result in a goal, or at least a draw.

However, two substitutes brought about Morocco's downfall. First came Sofyan Amrabat, who gave away a stupid free-kick in stoppage time. The kick led to Aziz Bouhaddouz heading the ball into his own goal.
There was silence in the cafes as the patrons got up and left. Heartbreak for Morocco. With games to come against Portugal and then Spain, it appears that Morocco's World Cup is already over.
