That ends our coverage of this one. The next game is Germany v Japan and hop tabs to follow that one. For now bye from here.

17:27 (IST)23 NOV 2022

A couple of tweets before we end this.

17:25 (IST)23 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! Morocco 0 Croatia 0. Both sides pressed hard but the lack of quality in front of goal was a major reason for it being goalless at full-time. A fair result in the end.

17:19 (IST)23 NOV 2022

6 minutes of added time.

17:13 (IST)23 NOV 2022

A double change for Morocco - Abdelhamid Sabiri, comes on for Azzedine Ounahi. Striker Youssef En-Nesyri also makes way for Abderrazak Hamdallah.

17:02 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Abdessamad Ezzalzouli with a lung-busting run but he tries do too much and is crowded out on the edge of the area.

17:01 (IST)23 NOV 2022

What a ball from Modric from a free-kick and needs a desperate clearance from Youssef En-Nesyri to hook it away with Mario Pasalic almost certain to score.

16:54 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Morocco get a free-kick from 40 yards out and Hakimi blasts it straight at the goalkeeper who punches it away. Fairly straightforward save that but Hakimi packed a punch behind that one.

16:52 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Brilliant run from Hakimi and he crosses from the right after that, but no team-mate can get a boot on that, was a gilt-edged chance and any sort of touch would've been a goal for sure.

16:49 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Noussair Mazraoui who took a blow earlier is off and is being carried off on a stretcher. Not the sight you want to see on a football field. Yahia Attiyat Allah comes on in his place.

16:44 (IST)23 NOV 2022

During half-time Mario Pasalic of Atalanta came on for Nikola Vlasic for the Croatian side. One target-man for another.

16:43 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Croatia meanwhile break at the other end and from a corner, the ball is pinballing around and Morocco clear the danger. But there are players down and we have a stoppage in play as medical staff are down to have a look.

16:42 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Noussair Mazraoui heads at Dominik Livakovic and then goes out of the byline, stays down and he looks injured. But he slowly gets up.

16:34 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Second half begins.

16:18 (IST)23 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! Morocco 0 Croatia 0. An entertaining half as Morocco impressed with their forward line with Ziyech, Hakimi and Youssef En-Nesyri looking dangerous. For Croatia though it was Modric who was pulling the strings and at the end of the half they tested Morocco's keeper. A good game so far.

16:18 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Another chance as Luka Modric from just outside the box blasts over as he went for power rather placement.

16:17 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Yassine Bounou comes out to punch clear and then makes a sharp stop to deny a sure goal as Croatia attacked down the left and the cross came in to the man in the box who flicked at him. Sharp reflexes.

16:12 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Nikola Vlasic is down and we have the first stoppage of the game. It has been such a fun watch as both teams go for it.

16:04 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Josip Juranovic delivers a fine cross but is cut out by a sliding Moroccan defender.

16:02 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Croatia have dominated possession with 61% but it is Morocco who look dangerous with Ziyech and Hakimi and their target man Youssef En-Nesyri.

15:48 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Hakim Ziyech almost delivers a pinpoint ball to Youssef En-Nesyri who fails to get his head on the teasing cross at the far-post.

15:47 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Ivan Perisic lets fly from around 40 yards but it just flies over. Both sides now going for it.

15:40 (IST)23 NOV 2022

10 minutes gone and neither goalkeeper has been called into action so far.

15:32 (IST)23 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy of the BBC: This is the first encounter between Morocco and Croatia at a World Cup. Their only previous meeting was in the Hassan II Trophy in December 1996, played in Casablanca.

15:31 (IST)23 NOV 2022

14:43 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Luka Modric, Kovacic and Brozovic will look to control the midfield for Croatia. While the trio of Boufal, El-Neysiri and Ziyech will be the key men in Morocco's attack

14:36 (IST)23 NOV 2022

The action is heating up as the line-ups are announced! Both teams have some familiar names in their line up. Croatia, however, will be quietly confident of the quality they possess in their side

14:29 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Luka Modric and Co will be looking to repeat their 2018 heroics while Hakim Ziyech's return to the national team has certainly given Morocco a boost. Looking forward to a thrilling and high-scoring encounter 

14:26 (IST)23 NOV 2022
