We will end the coverage of this here. See you on the France v England game. Bye.

22:44 (IST)10 DEC 2022

We will leave you with a couple of tweets.

22:40 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Boss Walid Regragui is being hoisted into the air by his players in more Moroccan celebrations.

22:39 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Morocco will play France or England in the semi-final.

22:39 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Lots of Moroccan players with their families as they celebrate with them. Lots of support for them in the stands. Absolute scenes out there.

22:37 (IST)10 DEC 2022

STAT: Morocco create history as they become the first African side to reach the World Cup semi-finals.

22:34 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Such a sad sight to see Cristiano Ronaldo in tears and he walks straight off. Down the tunnel and is being consoled by someone. But he is weeping inconsolably.

22:27 (IST)10 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! Morocco 1 Portugal 0. Morocco's dream journey continues as a single goal from Youssef En-Nesyri is enough to crash Ronaldo and Portugal's dreams. A fairtytale finish for Hakimi and Co. after they defended heroically despite injuries including to their captain Romain Saiss.

22:27 (IST)10 DEC 2022

PORTUGAL ARE OUT! Yet another big fish goes down as Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal are knocked out.

22:27 (IST)10 DEC 2022

WHAT A CHANCE FOR Pepe! That was the chance for Portugal to equalise. Pepe is found at the back stick but he can't direct his header inside the near-post. Just wide.

22:27 (IST)10 DEC 2022

WHAT A MISS BY Zakaria Aboukhlal! That was the chance for Morocco. Aboukhlal is through on goal and is one-one with Costa, he attempts to dink the keeper and lobs it straight at the keeper.

22:22 (IST)10 DEC 2022

RED CARD TO Walid Cheddira for leaving a high boot on Joao Felix. Drama as Cheddira goes in studs showing on Felix, catches him on the ankle, a second yellow is shown and the Argentinian referee brings out the red. Cheddira protests but off he goes. Morocco have to play their last 6 minutes with 10 men. Can they hang on?

22:21 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Then Cristiano Ronaldo on the turn shoots straight at the goalkeeper. 

22:21 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Chances at both ends - first Walid Cheddira is away on the left, but horribly slices it wide.

22:19 (IST)10 DEC 2022

8 minutes of added time.

22:15 (IST)10 DEC 2022

WHAT A SAVE BY Yassine Bounou! Ronaldo tees up Joao Felix whose first-time left-footed curler is heading into the top corner until the keeper claws it away with a big right fist.

22:14 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Morocco make a double change: Sofiane Boufal and Hakim Ziyech are off. Yahya Jabrane and Zakaria Aboukhlal are on.

22:12 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Portugal change: Diogo Dalot off and Ricardo Horta on.

22:02 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Portugal relentless with their attacks but Morocco hanging on for now.

22:02 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Nicely worked free-kick from the left as Bruno Fernandes passes to Bernardo Silva who is not expecting that in the middle, he is unmarked but can only get a toe to it.

22:01 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Otavio and Goncalo Ramos the two withdrawn.

21:59 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Vitinha and Rafael Leao are on for Portugal. 

21:56 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Portugal set to make a double change soon.

21:56 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Double change for Morocco: Selim Amallah and Youssef En-Nesyri are off. Walid Cheddira and Badr Benoun are on.

21:52 (IST)10 DEC 2022

So close as Bruno Fernandes lashes a rising drive over the crossbar. He is berating himself for not keeping it down and on target.

21:48 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Good chance for Goncalo Ramos but he can't direct his header on target. Drifts wide.

21:46 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Achraf Dari comes on in his place.

21:45 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Romain Saiss is down injured with a hamstring issue. He is now being stretchered off. 

21:45 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Morocco try to hit on the counter and Azz-Eddine Ounahi side-foots a shot well over from outside the box.

21:41 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Ronaldo as soon as he came on, was his animated self, urging his side on.

21:41 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Double change for Portugal: Ruben Neves and Raphael Guerreiro off. Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo on.

21:39 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Great save by Diogo Costa after a wicked free-kick from Hakim Ziyech that swung in towards him. Costa under pressure from an attacker does well to get his body in the way to save.

21:37 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Ronaldo is warming up now.

21:35 (IST)10 DEC 2022

STATS courtesy BBC: 

Morocco are unbeaten in their last three World Cup matches when leading at half-time (W3, D0) dating back to 3rd June 1970 against Germany (L1-2).

Morocco have stopped the opposition from scoring a first-half goal in four of their five games, only Brazil (5) and Argentina (5) have done this more often in the 2022 World Cup.

Portugal have failed to score a first-half goal in three of their five games, only Brazil (4) and Croatia (4) have failed to score more often in the 2022 World Cup.

Portugal have lost their last six World Cup matches when behind at half time, with their only such win coming in the quarter-final in 1966 (5-3 against DPR Korea).

21:35 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Second half kicks off.

21:23 (IST)10 DEC 2022

It all kicked off after the half-time whistle as Portugal's players surrounded the Argentinian referee. They were unhappy that a penalty was not given when Bruno went down in the box in the dying seconds of the half. And then Morocco nearly scored a 2nd but Yahia Attiyat Allah sliced the shot well wide as they broke down the left. Tasty affair and expect it to get more tetchy in the 2nd half.

21:20 (IST)10 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME! Morocco 1 Portugal 0. Morocco doing Moroccan things. Defend well and hit on the counter. The goal was a bit of a goalkeeping error as Costa came and did not get there. Bruno hit the crossbar after the goal and it's all perfectly set up for the 2nd half.

21:17 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Two minutes of added time.

21:17 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Bruno Fernandes HITS THE CROSSBAR! A lovely volley on the right from outside the box and Yassine Bounou can't stretch high and far enough to get a glove on that, the ball lands on the crossbar and goes away. Would've been the goal of this World Cup had it gone in. Not sure whether Bruno meant it or was it an attempted cross?

21:13 (IST)10 DEC 2022

GOAL! Youssef En-Nesyri in the 42nd minute! Morocco 1 Portugal 0. A delightful cross from the left is floated and Diogo Costa comes out for the ball but does not get there as he flaps at it, Youssef En-Nesyri gives Morocco the lead with a towering header. Perfect from the striker. Morocco fans go wild.

21:06 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Sofiane Boufal then tries to curl one in from outside the box but it's straight at Diogo Costa.

21:05 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Good chance for Selim Amallah as the ball is cut back from the left, but he can't keep the half-volley on target, skying it well over.

21:03 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Yassine Bounou was wrong-footed there and if it was on target, would've gone in.

21:02 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Joao Felix tries an outrageous outside of the boot flick which takes a wicket deflection and just loops over the crossbar.

20:57 (IST)10 DEC 2022

A free-kick on the right and the floated ball is glanced over by Youssef En-Nesyri. Half a chance that.

20:54 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Yassine Bounou and Bruno Fernandes go for a high ball in the box and collide with each other. Thankfully it's not a serious collision and both are fine to continue.

20:48 (IST)10 DEC 2022

The game has settled down into a pattern now. Portugal pressing and with possession, Morocco happy to defend and hit on the counter.

20:37 (IST)10 DEC 2022

Early chance for Morocco: From a corner Youssef En-Nesyri outjumps everyone and heads over.
