Morocco beats South Korea in women’s world cup match


Morocco made history on July 30th with a victory against South Korea in the Women’s World Cup in Adelaide, Australia, reports Africanews.

It’s the first victory for the Atlas Lionesses in a Women’s World Cup.

Morocco scored after six minutes and kept the advantage throughout.

Morocco’s defender Nouhaila Benzina also became the first player to wear a Hijab in a World Cup game at senior level.

The ban on wearing the veil in football is still in place in some countries, including France. In a recent decision, the French Council of State upheld the ban imposed by the French Football Federation after an appeal by the “Hijabeuses” collective, who were calling for a change in the regulations.

The victory keeps Morocco in contention to advance to the knockout stages of the tournament.
