There was a shock in the world as Morocco became the first African nation to qualify for the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup for the first time in history. As a result of Morocco’s triumphant run in the knockout rounds, including the elimination of pretournament favorites Spain and Portugal, the North African nation is considered one of the greatest accomplishments in history.

It doesn’t take long for the Atlas Lions to send shockwaves around the world, as they eliminated Belgium from the group stage and qualified for the round of 16 of the competition. It was just the beginning of the fairytale as they continued to defeat the Spanish team via penalties in the Round of 16 before going on to defeat the Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portuguese side in the quarter-finals.

In an interesting twist, Morocco’s record-breaking performance in the ongoing mega-event was predicted almost 16 years ago in a Moroccan film titled ‘Wake Up Morocco’, which fully reflected the emotions that Moroccan players and fans felt when they qualified for the final of the FIFA World Cup.

Featuring Morocco’s current head coach, Walid Regragui, the heartfelt film has been screened at the National Film Festival in Tangier as well as the Marrakesh International Film Festival.

There are some striking similarities between Wake Up Morocco and Morocco’s performance in the FIFA World Cup, which is still ongoing at the moment. Video footage of mass celebrations being held in different parts of the country can be mistaken for the celebrations being held in the country at the moment.

Morocco is just one step away from qualifying for the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but they have a huge task on their hands as they face France in the semi-final of the tournament. The match is scheduled to be played at 12:00 AM (PKT) on Thursday.
